“Many people thought that [a woman wearing trousers] was unacceptable and disrespectful, but I wanted to be at the front with my fellow soldiers and wearing a skirt in that situation was just not realistic,” remarks Iman Elman- a female Somali soldier whose beauty is striking.
Despite the beauty of the 24-years old Iman, her bravery just earned her the position of a Captain-a role known for the male soldiers.
Iman has been a military soldier since 2011 and it hasn’t been an easy journey for the beauty. She talks of the numerous challenges associated with the male-dominated career line.
“Women make up a small percentage of the Somali military—about 1,500 out of 20,000 fighters, or 7.5 percent. Even fewer have attained the rank of captain, which involves commanding a troop of (mostly male) soldiers. Most are confined to menial roles, such as providing security at police stations, rather than fighting on the front line. Few are bold enough to go out in pants as Elman does, though she does wear a traditional hijab as a mark of respect,” states europe.newsweek.com.

“Leo Nafungua Roho…The Captain.. My All Time Crush 24-7/365.. #KwishaMimi,” captioned Yassin after sharing the photos below;
