Sophie Alal founded Deyu African in 2012 to promote the arts, culture and freedom of expression. She was born and raised in Uganda. Her pieces of writing have been published in anthologies by FEMRITE, the Kalahari Review, Lawino Magazine and other places. She can be found diligently curating articles for Deyu African and taking loads of pictures. She loves reading books, cooking, farming, and camping. What motivates her work is the desire to disrupt all negative imagery of our diverse cultures, and to ignite spirited discussions about exacting wholesome progress through the arts.
“A culture that is not in control of their own narrative will forever live at the mercy of another’s pen.” ~Mark Gonzales
