Imani Shola is a 20-year-old author, student and creative from London.
At age fourteen she became a Commended Winner of the Foyle Young Poet of the Year Award, the world’s largest and most prestigious award for young poets, attracting tens of thousands of entries from over 70 countries each year. Since then she has been pursuing her studies, and is now an undergraduate at the University of Cambridge.
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. She has a growing YouTube channel where she offers advice to around 6000 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.
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, and now her book in 2017.
