OUR AMAZING EMCEE!

Akwi Nji 

Akwi was a 2016 Iowa Arts Council Artist Fellow, and as founding Executive Director of The Hook, she produces live creative storytelling and performance poetry events including Drop the Mic, The Living Room Series, #WeAre, and ArtLOUD!. She performs throughout the country and has appeared on stage with authors such as Saul Williams and Rachel Hollis. Primarily, though, you've likely heard her voice on weather-related calls which start something like, " Hello. This is a message to all families and staff in the Cedar Rapids Community School District." She loves supporting public education and positively impacting students in her current role as Communications Director for CRCSD.
