"A story I always tell people is I remember growing up in Egypt, while my parents were in London waiting for us all to be granted asylum," Deng said. "We were a poor family struggling day in, day out, just planning what we could eat, what we could have for dinner, every day. There were days we would go on without eating and I never forget those days.
But what I remember is we would have visitors and my family somehow would cook the best meals, they’d find a way to cook the biggest meals. I remember thinking, why don’t we have this every day. Later on, as I got older, I got to understand it was my family’s way of giving thanks to people for coming to our house to visit us. That’s the type of family I come from. If someone shows me love, I always want to double that love. From where I came from, the way I was raised, when somebody does something for you, you always want to give something back to them.”
