Iman Sultan is a freelance writer and journalist, dividing her time between Philadelphia and Karachi. Originally from Pakistan, Sultan was born and raised on the East Coast of the U. S. with periodic visits back to Pakistan as a child. Passionate about writing from a young age, Sultan decided to pursue a career in journalism to connect her love for political engagement with writing. In 2014, she became politically active with social movements, such as the Black Lives Matter movement and student solidarity with Palestine.
Sultan’s research and writing interests focus on women, youth, social justice, community, politics, and arts/culture, but she can’t bracket herself to one – or even multiple – categories. It’s the diversity of her interests that makes her writing life exciting.
When Sultan is not writing herself, she is reading a good book – and thinking about where she’s going to go next, what she’s going to write next.
