Bio

My name is Aggie Williams and I am originally from Monrovia, Liberia. My family and I migrated to the States in 2005, and now reside in Louisville, Kentucky. I am expected to graduate May of 2018, with hopes and dreams of pursuing a doctoral degree in biomedical sciences and delve into pharmaceuticals. I am currently a senior, majoring in chemistry with a concentration of pre-pharmacy. For the past year, I’ve been conducting research under the supervision of Dr. Lindsay Calderon within the biological sciences department. I got the opportunity to present my research at a conference in New York and aspire to present at several conferences in the future. I must say it has been a real pleasure working with the diversity team giving that I’ve been a support staff for over two years. Diversity has always been a big deal to me, because it’s a way of enhancing social developments. I served as vice president of the African Student Association (ASA) for two years. I am a certified peer mentor, first Year student leader, and a member of several other organizations, like the National Society of Collegiate Scholars and McNair scholars program. I’m a volunteer at Norton’s Healthcare hospital working in different departments (children’s, hospice, gift shop, etc.). Throughout my college experience, I’ve learned that interacting with people from a variety of groups widens your social circle by expanding the pool of people with whom you can associate and develop relationships.
