Kelsey Williams is 19-years-old and attends the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
She began her involvement with Movement of Youth in November of 2013, when she decided to become a mentor.
From her 5 months of being involved with MOY, she believes that the kids benefit from this program by being driven by like-minded students who want to be successful. “When you are surrounded by positive people, you want to do better,” says Williams.
The kids are not the only ones benefitting from what MOY has to offer. Williams believes that by being a part of this program, she is able to give back.
Mentoring has also helped Williams learn about leadership styles through MOY activities. Her best memory yet with MOY was Historic Thousands on Jones Street (HKonJ) on Saturday, February 8th. To be one of the people protesting and trying to make change, along with her mentees, allowed them all to benefit from making a difference in some small way.
