About Me

Hello! I am Iman Azman and I am excited you’re browsing my page.

I am a twenty-something who loves (almost) everything the world has to offer. From books to bunnies, food to fitness, work to working-out and the tiny pieces in between.

I am a proud Carleton University journalism alumnus and spent most of my early adult life growing up in magicalย Ottawa. I love being back in KL and super pumped aboutย sharing this next phase of Life with you!

Okay, you know a bit about me now, friends?

  1. Salam Iman,

    I’m Tira from Sabah, Malaysia (guess that’s something we’ve in common) and your life story just inspired me! I’m reading through your posts on blog and love what I see. You seem intelligent, aspiring, confident, friendly and warm and I wonder how long you’ve been living in Canada to pick up that Canadian accent? ๐Ÿ™‚ Did you leave KL after primary school? I wonder if your university is good for a mature age single Muslim woman like myself to study in. Have you experienced any discrimination or being singled out for your identity?

    Look forward to your response! ๐Ÿ™‚ Please keep writing, Iman. You might think me nonsensical, but you made Malaysians proud in a way. Congratulations for your recent graduation by the way!

    Regards,
    Tira

      Salam Tira! I am so very sorry for this crazy overdue reply (even though I could’ve sworn that I wrote you a long email.. my mind sometimes makes up stories)

      Thank you very much for your sweet message, it means a lot to me! I hope you’re enjoying all the new content I’ve been posting recently.

      I moved to Ottawa when I was 19 for university, I lived in KL all my life before that. Alhamdulillah I strongly believe that Carleton and Ottawa is an amazing place to live and study. Ottawa is extremely muslim friendly; there are many halal butchers, restaurants and several mosques and suraus. The malls don’t have a suraus (most in North America don’t) but a lot of stores have super big changing rooms for mall-time prayers ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I have never felt singled out, discriminated against or made to feel anything less than I am by anyone in Canada. I felt ‘normal’ (not that Muslims should feel abnormal, but you get my drift!) and no one treated me any differently from anyone else.

      Canada is experiencing a wave of New Canadians – individuals from other corners of the world who move to Canada and built a life there. These people are usually called ‘immigrants’ or ‘foreigners’, but in Canada, we’re known as New Canadians, and I feel that’s such an apt symbol of how accepting Canadians are of welcoming others into their *figuratively* group hug ๐Ÿ™‚

      Please feel free to shoot me an email if you have any questions or if you just want to chat! Would love to help in any way I can! Thanks again Tira!
