Born and raised in San Diego, CA, Imani Cezanne enlightens, empowers and inspires audiences with her words. As the youngest member ever to make the San Diego Slam team, she helped the team place 6th in the Nation at the 2010 National Poetry Slam in St. Paul, MN. She has participated in countless poetry slams throughout California including the Individual World Poetry Youth Slam in 2009, in which she came in 3rd. Imani always thrives to better herself through the power of the spoken word and loves to share her passion with anyone willing to listen. She is now pursuing her Bachelor’s degree at San Francisco State University.
Imani is also the Founder and President of Spoken Poetry Expressed by All Kinds (S.P.E.A.K.), an on-campus organization that creates and plans events that elevate, empower, inspire, and motivate not only the entire San Francisco State University community, but the surrounding areas as well. S.P.E.A.K. thrives on the interest and the sharing of the arts. Open-mic events, writing workshops and poetry slams are just a few of the ways we stir the creative pot. We not only allow students to feel comfortable with their talents, but create an environment for networking and collaborations. Imani’s goal is to continue to help S.P.E.A.K. thrive on the SFSU campus, and expand to other campuses nationwide.
