Sagal Ali

Sagal Ali lived on three continents before the age of 11. She was born in a small town in Germany where she lived for five years. Her family then moved to Somalia. When the civil war broke out several years later, they moved to Canada. Sagal attended high school in Toronto before moving to Ottawa to attend Carleton University in 2002. In June, she graduated with a Bachelor of Journalism with a combined honours in Mass Communication.

In 2004, Sagal participated in an exchange to London, England, where she studied journalism at City University. The experience made her want to travel more and write about different people, places and cultures. Having worked for the Children’s Aid Society of Toronto for three summers, Sagal has developed a passion for writing about social issues such as abuse, poverty and racism. She hopes to one day be a social issues reporter for a newspaper or a magazine. In her spare time, Sagal watches incredible amounts of television. It’s an addiction she hopes to replace one day with something more productive.
