Iman obtained her Bachelor of Economics from Cairo University in 2019, with a passion for human rights and migration studies. After graduating, she started having multiple consultancy opportunities to work with migrants and refugees in Egypt in the different fields of education, livelihoods, entrepreneurship, and social inclusion. Thanks to the Lazord Fellowship, she was placed at the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Egypt, where she became more aware of the different phases of the grant-provision process as well as the hardships migrants experience living in Egypt. Her future goal is to work towards improving the quality of life for the most vulnerable to enable them to live in safety and dignity, and to have access to decent work and living conditions.
Other than her formal work path, Iman is deeply concerned with animal rights and advocates for making choices that create a kinder world for animals.
