Neima Abdulahi is an Emmy-nominated and award-winning journalist in Atlanta who has carved out a niche style of storytelling that provides a unique perspective into the lives of diverse communities.
Neima has worked in top TV markets, most recently as an on-air journalist and content creator for Atlanta’s NBC-affiliate 11Alive News and prior to that, reporting at the FOX-affiliate in Charlotte, North Carolina. She was born in Somalia and grew up in metro Atlanta, Georgia.
Neima was nominated for an Emmy in 2019 and 2018 for her thought-provoking cultural content and breaking news coverage of the Black Lives Matter protests. She won a prestigious NABJ award in 2017 along with several other awards over the years. She loves being a voice for the community and covering stories that impact the lives of everyday people.
Here’s how the NeimerDreamer brand started, which is the name of her website and social media handles. Neima had that nickname since she was in middle school, because her peers could see at a young age that she was a dream chaser. That’s how NeimerDreamer came to be. And over the years, she began to embrace it and integrate it into her professional and digital brand.
Neima specializes in reporting & producing special projects, docu-series style work, and creative culture content. She has produced hip-hop documentary specials with sit down interviews with Gucci Mane, T.I., Killer Mike, Migos, Zaytoven, and so many others.
Neima is a graduate of Elon University and a proud member of the National Association of Black Journalists and the Emma Bowen Foundation.
