Imani Thornton

Communications Associate, Project 55 Fellow


Imani is a recent graduate and a fellow for Princeton University’s Project 55 Fellowship. A native from Chicago’s South Suburbs, she is thrilled about working at Free Spirit Media due to its mission of catering and empowering historically disadvantaged people, particularly youth. She was drawn to Free Spirit due to her commitments to freedom, storytelling, socioeconomic justice, understanding race, and ultimately the politics of our everyday interactions. With her experience writing and editing, interning at both a political office and a non-profit, Imani hopes that as a Communications Associate she can serve Free Spirit through collaboration with fellow staff and thus help ease the pathway between expression and liberation.
