Domonique Williams is a Roxbury native with a strong dedication to public service and political activism. Beginning at a young age, she attended rallies and community meetings and spent summers volunteering on political campaigns with her mother and grandmother.
Being active politically meant pushing to influence the policy that affects those in Roxbury and other similarly marginalized communities around the state. It is empowering for her to see the change effected by average citizens who dared to make the community a brighter, safer place for residents.
After graduating from Winston-Salem State University in May 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Mass Communications, she returned to her hometown with the hopes of bettering her community. Still active on numerous political campaigns, Domonique is excited to bring her voice and perspective to the Ethnic Gems section of the magazine. Looking to the future, Domonique hopes to attend law school in the fall of 2011 to become an intellectual property attorney.
