Imagine hearing those words. Iman Oubou—founder and CEO of Swaay Media, and our featured guest on this episode of Role Modeling—did hear those words once upon a time. But she didn’t let it stop her. Born and raised in Morocco until the age of 15, Iman Oubou and her family picked up and moved everything to Colorado, and though the transition was difficult for Iman, she credits it as one of the best things that’s ever happened to her.

“[N]ever see yourself through the eyes of people that don’t value you.”

Since coming to America, she has studied bioengineering and was crowned Miss New York in 2015. Her most recent endeavor, Swaay Media, is a media brand focused on empowering and uplifting women that aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo—women that are looking to “sway the narrative.”
