Timiyah also was able to learn from jazz vocalist Michael Mwenso, who was instrumental in furthering her passion for activism in the arts (2019). In 2020 Love became one of the founding members of Dreams Affirmed, UB’s first student-run diversity club for students of color in the performing arts, under the auspices of Theatre and Dance.
