Better known as Taim to her listeners, Futaim Al Falasi is an online media personality who shot to fame in the digital world with her radio show, Taim Show. With tens of thousands of listeners across the Middle East, Falasi offers a mixture of music and conversation, a recipe she developed during her time at university.

It was while studying for her visual communications Bachelor degree at Zayed University that Falasi put together her first show from her bedroom with only a microphone and a laptop. Later, as a member of twofour54’s Creative Lab community, she honed her skills and the rest, as they say, is history. Her other endeavours include humanitarian campaigns and an online entertainment magazine. Her celebrity interviews have been a hit on YouTube, reaching more than one million viewers.
