Kelsey Williams is a junior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill majoring in Reporting.
She has been involved with Movement of Youth for two years and currently serves as the Site Director for UNC Chapel Hill’s site.
Kelsey says that she became a mentor with Movement of Youth because she knows that the people you surround yourself with have a direct impact on the person that you will become. She did not have a mentor until she arrived at UNC. Williams says, “without all of the mentors I have had in my college career, I would not still be at UNC. I have seen firsthand what happens when people do not have positive motivated role models to look up to.” She wanted to be able to play this part for a younger student. She went on to be a member of the executive team because she sees where MOY has been and knows where it can go. She wanted to be a part of the change.
Kelsey says that her favorite experience with MOY thus far was participating in HKonJ this past February. “Although it was freezing outside, I think that event embodied MOY’s purpose. We call ourselves Movement of Youth and that was one of the times that I really saw MOY move. Our students and myself were so fortunate to be a part of something greater than ourselves.”
