Eman Askar's Bio
A multipotentialite with the mission to inspire. Eman’s song on Instagram ” Story of Palestine was watched over 11M times”
For 11 years, Eman has been professionally helping entities tell their stories, spread their messages, and communicate complicated information in creative, simple and entertaining ways.
It all started with her 5 year long job as a science communicator with Nutty Scientists where she would create and perform shows for children that help them understand scientific concepts while having fun! Then, for the following 5 years, Eman gained experience in the media industry when she worked in the creative team of Axeer studio and Giraffics. There, she was able to utilize her creative storytelling talents in a more corporate/ commercial context; writing creative concepts for commercial ads and scripts for professional infographic videos. She also learned how to create impact with stories while creating content in several awareness campaigns for UNICEF, UN Women, CARE, and more.
In the second half of 2020, Eman was ready to unleash more of her creative energy and so, she decided to continue her professional content creation work on freelance basis to have enough time to produce content for her own channel. There, she was able to explore more content creation methods in which she can add value, such as singing/songwriting, acting, and making short energetic videos.
Eman’s mission is to inspire individuals to become the best versions of themselves and eventually help in building a healthier community that is able to work together for a better future. First, her plan was to simply tell inspiring stories, spread motivational messages and explain game changing topics, all through her songs and videos. Then, one of her songs, “The story of Palestine”, went viral on an international level which gave her the opportunity of a bigger and more diverse audience. This motivated her into adding “bridging cultural gaps and building international friendships” to her list of “to do’s”. Eman’s long term plan for achieving this is, through hosting workshops and retreats (online and offline) that can help build closer friendships for her audience with her and one another.
On a personal level, despite looking young, Eman is actually a mom of two and she shares this part of her life in her content as well.
