Phenomenal Women – Iman

Zara Mohamed Abdulmajid or Iman as she is better known is a world-renowned supermodel and entrepreneur.  Born in Somalia to a relatively wealthy family.  Well educated, Iman decided to attend University to study political science, and it is while she was there that she was discovered and embarked on her modeling career.  Her striking features soon elevated her to the title of supermodel.

After 14 years as a model, Iman decided to create her own brand of cosmetics focusing on shades and tones appropriate for darker skin which in those days were more challenging to find.  Exploiting a gap in the market, she is now a successful businesswoman.

Also known for her marriage to David Bowie, Iman is a devoted mother and also pursues philanthropic activities including ambassadorships and award wins.  When David Bowie died in 2016, she paid tribute to him saying

“the struggle is real, but so is God.”
