Almas Elman was the sister of Ilwad Elman, an aid worker recently shortlisted for the Nobel Pease Prize. Her father, Elman Ali Ahmed who was a Somali activist was also assassinated in Mogadishu in 1996. She fled with her family to Canada in the early 1990s during the Somali Civil War.

She was the first secretary at the Somali Embassy in Kenya. Her sisters Ilwad and Iman along with their mother run a non-profit foundation dedicated to promoting peace, cultivating leadership and empowering the marginalized brackets of society to be decision makers in the processes that ensure their well-being.
