One of her proudest moments is continuously covering the Atlanta Child Murders case with exclusive content about the investigation and family interviews. Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said in a tearful one-on-one interview that because of Neima's reports, the city is now building a memorial to remember the 29 victims in an honorable way.
