Smart. Beautiful. Empowering. Alimani, a model, actress and aspiring real estate agent, has been a disciplinarian and is a name to reckon with in the fashion industry. Her aspiration to get better at everything showcases her true strength and grit. She believes her mind is a powerful tool which not only sets her apart from the crowd but also helps her encourage others around her to become the better version of themselves. Describing herself as quite ambitious who loves to set different milestones, Alimani says she is always eager to move onto the next goal as soon as she achieves one. Considering what all she has achieved in her life already, Alimani believes she definitely couldn't have been happier with the choices she has made till date and is quite proud of all she has done.
