Hi there. I am Imani, a multi-hyphenate-Millennial-from-Florida. I am a researcher, consultant, lecturer, writer and periodic performance poet. As a full-time legal fellow at the University of Florida, I center informational transparency. I also make media appearances, present at universities and write for diverse publications.
With training in jurisprudence, journalism and cultures (particularly Black, Indigenous and People of Color “BIPOC” communities), my work elevates vulnerable communities. I thrive when covering environments, cultures, human rights, and society.
I earned an environmental and land use law LL.M and graduate certificate in Latin American Studies at the University of Florida. A proud double HBCU alum, I earned a J.D. at Florida A&M and a B.A. in mass communication at Grambling State — where I was editor-in-chief of the university newspaper for two-and-a-half years.
I am Afro-Atlantic, left-handed and a quintessential eldest sibling. I enjoy art exhibits, comedy shows, and jerk protein. My dream position is a professorship.
