Daphne Palasi Andreades on the wonders of daydreaming and creativity

Growing up with gal-dem

26-05-2022 • 29 mins

Following her debut book release Brown Girls, we are joined by the lovely Daphne Palasi Andreades. Her new book takes a deep dive into the lives of a variety of young women of colour growing up in Queens, New York. Daphne masterfully taps into various diasporas and communities to share their narrative as one whole.


In a Growing up with gal-dem first, Daphne’s extract is a tactile and colourful visual art piece she created when she was 11 years old. She reminds us of the joys of daydreaming and wondering, as we are taken through an immersive journey of creativity in a playful and inquisitive way.
