Representative: Imani Dixon
Board of Trustees Student Representative (August 2016)
President of Spelman Student Government Association (SSGA) (2016-17)
Imani Dixon was born in Hartford Connecticut but raised in Charlotte North Carolina by an amazing family who taught her to strive for the best, by striving to glorify God. At Spelman, she hasn't lost sight of these teachings, cultivating a strong passion for education, leadership and serving her Spelman sisters. This is shown by her involvement in the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, Alpha Lamda Delta First Year Honor Society, Economics Club, Morehouse Business Association, Spelman College Student Ambassadors, and the Spelman College Glee Club. Imani has a burning desire to serve others as she mentors and tutors disadvantaged teen girls at the City of Refuge under the STARS, Sisters Truly Aiding Our Remarkable Sisters program, with We the People, Help the People. As the 2015-2016 SGA Secretary of Institutional Advancement, she also values the importance of serving her Spelman sisters through coordinating fundraising events, such as the Black History Visual Arts Auction to increase the SGA Student Scholarship Fund.
As an economics major, French and accounting double minor, Imani's first priority, next to God and family, is academics, allowing her to thrive professionally. Imani has served two summers interning with J.P. Morgan Chase under the marketing and product development track, in both Dallas, Texas and New York City. Imani also cultivates her studies internationally through traveling to Legon, Ghana. A recent participant of the Wake Forest University Accounting Diversity Consortium, Imani hopes to receive her Masters of Science in accounting and CPA from Wake Forest University, becoming an accountant, then starting her own business aimed towards consulting start-up black owned businesses on their finances, ensuring their longevity. As the 2016-2017 SGA President, Imani hopes to build a legacy of integrity, passion and commitment, focusing on student advocacy for the school year and years to come. Imani believes each day is a blessing living by the scripture, "What is impossible with man is possible with God."
