Amun Abdullahi grew up in Somalia and came in the 1990s to Sweden as a refugee. In Sweden, she lived first in Umeå, then Stockholm's Rinkeby district, and finally Kista, before moving back to Mogadishu, Somalia.

In Stockholm, she worked for SR International, and made several high-profile reports broadcast on Sveriges Radio. Among other things, she revealed in 2009 that a leader of a youth center in Rinkeby recruited young people to the Somali Islamist militia al-Shabab.

She has been both physically and intellectually attacked and repeatedly threatened due to her work. She claims that Sweden is "more dangerous than Mogadishu" for a journalist who wants to tell the truth.
