about

Imani Shola is an author, entrepreneur and creative from London.

Previously a winner of the Foyle Young Poet of the Year Award, her debut collection of self-care poetry and affirmative notes for broken hearts, Heart Shards and Lip Balm, was published worldwide and made available on Amazon in July 2017. It became a bestseller, ranking no.70 in U.S. poetry in January 2018.

Imani also has a growing YouTube channel where she offers academic advice to thousands of 18-25 year-olds and shares her journey of faith. Here, on her official site, she writes a monthly blog journalling her twenties in the hope that the lessons she learns along the way will encourage others.

Most recently, having graduated with First Class Honours from the University of Cambridge, and gained tens of thousands of views on her revision advice YouTube videos, Imani started ISLA Coaching, her Academic Coaching business, to empower other students to achieve academic success.

Imani’s heart is simply to love others and to help them heal, grow and excel. She does so through different creative mediums: her channel since 2015, her blog since 2016, her book in 2017, and her coaching business, ISLA Coaching, in 2018.

She can be found on Instagram and Twitter: @imanishola. Listen to her interview on BBC Radio 4 Women’s Hour, and read her features in Pride Magazine, the Enfield Independent and even The Guardian Tanzania!
