Imani is a Freshman at Georgia State University. She is from Nigeria and is of the Igbo tribe. Her major is Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in theatre performance. She had always wanted to be an actress since she was a little girl and started to follow her dreams when she relocated to the United States in 2019. She graduated from Heritage High school and was the Theatre Academy Star of her graduating class. She was also a finalist for the 14th regional August Wilson Monologue Competition. Days you don’t find her working on a project or doing homework, she’s probably eating pasta or binge-watching a series. Her favorite movies are Great Gatsby, Sound of metal, and Eyimofe. Some of her favorite things to do that aren’t performing are hanging out with friends, dancing, thrifting, and writing thoughts in her notes app. A philosophy of hers that she lives by is that if you don’t do it, no one will. She’s a firm believer in following your dreams, no matter how big or small. She also wants to make a difference in the film industry regarding portraying black people, especially black women. She believes that black people are shown as a specific type, contributing to stereotypical narratives. The media being her most substantial influence, she needs it to represent people of color accurately so they don’t feel alone in their experiences. She also wants to be in projects and films that center Nigerian-Americans and the internal conflicts about two such contrasting cultures.
