Imani was born in White Plains, NY and moved to the Atlanta area when she was just three years old. She is the second child out of four. She lives with her mother and oldest sibling - both of whom she is very close to. Imani's hobbies include drawing, playing video games, and caring for animals. Caring for animals has always been her passion, and Imani always knew she wanted to be in a profession that involved helping animals and learning more about them. Though she has always been an animal lover, Amani said when growing up she had a great fear of dogs. She said she loved seeing them but was afraid to get too close. When Imani started volunteering at The Village Vets in August of 2015 her phobia of dogs slowly diminished "thanks to the careful teachings of mentors and constant interations with different types of dogs".
Why she does this: "I am so grateful to The Village Vets for allowing me to take care of their patients. Because of their mentoring I feel I have endless possibilities in animal care and I am excited to see where this experience will take me".
