Liza Bel

Founder of How Is Africa

While working in East Africa for four years I was both inspired by the incredible urban cultures and frustrated by the lack of representation of authentic voices of African youth in the digital space. Together with a pan-African and international team, I launched How is Africa: a social enterprise that created the first blogging website for African youth and a free education programme in digital storytelling. I launched How Is Africa while running an education programme in digital citizenship at Google UK. I am a former radio host at French Radio London and I mentor charities and foundations in Uganda and the DRC. I write about experiences and learning of running a side hustle and about stories that connect us as a human tribe. All views expressed here are only my own and don't engage my employers.
