about

Hey, welcome! ☺️

Thank you for stopping by.

I’m Imani – an author, wellness champion, music artist and creative from London. My mission is simple: to love people and empower people.

I do that in four main ways: this journal of my 20s where I share life lessons and encouragement; books, including self-care poetry collection, Heart Shards and Lip Balm; my music, which you can enjoy on Spotify and Soundcloud; and ISLA, an academic support initiative comprising both ISLA Coaching and Higher Education scholarship, The ISLA Gift.

Founded in 2020, The ISLA Gift provides financial and mentorship support to students from underrepresented backgrounds. In 2020, we gave out £1700 in crowdfunded cash gifts and paired 38 students with their own subject-specialist mentor. By 2021, that tripled to nearly £5,800 (incl. gift aid) and a partnership with Cambridge University’s Churchill College. Meet the 2021 winners here.

Most recently, in October 2020, I began releasing my music and in April 2021, my second book, Messy Loving, was published.
