Iman was born in Copenhagen, Denmark and is of Lebanese origin. She received her BA in English from the University of Copenhagen, and spent a year abroad in Paris studying English and Photojournalism at Université Paris Diderot.

She is multilingual and speaks English, Arabic and Danish fluently. She also speaks conversational French.

Iman was once featured on popular Danish TV Channel 6 in their national search for a ‘football expert’. Making it to the top 3, she was fortunate enough to shadow famous pundits Mikkel Bischoff and John 'Faxe' Jensen, among others. Getting a glimpse behind the scenes of match days in their studio, she was tasked with live half-time and full-time analyses of the Premier League game between Chelsea and Fulham. This extraordinary experience only cemented her decision to become a sports journalist.

Her favourite sports are football and tennis. She is an avid Arsenal fan and enjoys attending games and live-tweeting during matches.

Iman is currently undertaking a Master’s degree in Sports Journalism at St Mary’s University, where she writes for the Sports Gazette.
