Alicia Williams ’14

Class of 2014, Major in Sociology

“Studying sociology helped me to understand myself more, as well as learn about diverse cultures and communities. This, in turn, led me to discover that I love helping and working with people.”


Alicia Williams ’14 always knew she wanted to attend college, but her life took a left turn when she was arrested and incarcerated at a young age. However, through the Bedford Hills College Program, she was able to get a Marymount Manhattan education in sociology while in prison.

In 2016, Williams completed a patient care technician program at Medgar Evers College. She currently works as a financial aid advisor for New Age Training in New York City. She enjoys playing sports, shopping, and spending time with family.
