Imani is a political science activist who joined the ACE community to explore her interest in climate change activism. Imani first became aware of this issue in 2016, and ever since then, she grew passionate about educating people and creating awareness and support. Environmental activism became important to her because she realized this is something bigger than us. It’s still something we have an influence over, whether it’s a negative or a positive influence. She wanted to join the Fellowship to connect with and experience other people who are passionate about this, because of this she looks forward to being a part of a movement. Imani values change, the mother, and its children.
