About me
19 years young, the sun blazes hard over north London. Fresh out of sixth form she delves straight into a crisis of self-examination, emerging ready to take the world by storm. Her creativity is fuelled by her Somali roots and western lifestyle. Her affinity for words combined with her unapologetic character means she is now ready to influence culture. It’s not a stretch to call her potentially revolutionary. Iman does not make mediocre work, but work that you wish you created. Her dream job has always been to be able to use words and influence people's lives. The D&AD new blood shift course has changed her life and now she's ready to make a positive impact as a creative copywriter by answering briefs, making ads and living her best life.

Unfortunately, society still views women as inferior drivers compared to men. In Formula-E anyone can win, because it's based on the drivers skill.
