William is a proud Durham native. By the age of 11, he had decided that he would be a construction worker, a doctor, a librarian, an artist, and, inevitably, very busy. To his surprise, none of these took hold. Instead, he wrestled his way through high school and wandered into UNC hoping to find some other way to be useful to the world. He graduated in 2012 with a BA in Sociology and African American studies. Afterwards, he served in AmeriCorps and worked as a manager of a health club. He is currently pursuing an MSW in the UNC School of Social Work and is grateful for the opportunity to be a part of Northside via his work at the Jackson Center.
