Kia Williams | 49er Graduate | UNC Charlotte | Charlotte, NC

What degree(s) are you earning? What do you plan on doing after graduation? 

My degree is the Master of Education in Child and Family Studies: Early Education. I plan on becoming a Family Interventionist after graduation and working close to children and their families.

What organizations were you involved in? 

I am involved in the Student Nation Association Got Education.

Favorite spot on campus and why? 

My favorite spot on campus would probably be the education building because that is where I spend the majority of my time.

What has been your favorite memory at UNC Charlotte?

My favorite memory here would probably be when I received my college of education pin before I started student teaching this semester.

Most valuable lesson learned during your college career? 

My most valuable lesson that was learned this year would be always believe in yourself! Never doubt your abilities to do anything you put your mind to. 

Kia, your personality shines as bright as the yellow dress that you wore that day! Even though it was my first time meeting you, I could tell by your aura that you have a kind heart and determination that will take you so far. Your smile is sure bridge the gap between others and your warm personality is sure to break boundaries and connect to the children and families that you will one day impact. The fact that you were willing to go barefoot into the waterfall (cracks me up! and...) shows that you are willing to take chances and stray away from the norm. Which is invaluable. Best of luck on what's to come!
