Ronnetta Zack-Williams, United Communities Against Poverty

Ronnetta Zack-Williams is a recent graduate of Delaware State University, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and minor in Africana Studies. Ronnetta participated in the International Social Sciences Workshop with UCLA, through which she traveled to Senegal, Botswana, and South Africa to learn more about different methods of research and speak with different scholars about their work. This experience spurred Ronnetta’s interest in Black Consciousness and  led to her senior capstone, which was a comparative analysis of the black consciousness movement in South Africa and black power movement in the United States. In addition to her studies, Ronnetta has volunteered with Habitat for Humanity and served as a Peer Mentor in college.

Ronnetta’s decision to serve with Volunteer Maryland at United Communities Against Poverty grew out of her desire to impact her community in a positive way. Working with disadvantaged populations has always been important to Ronnetta, who knows that not everyone is afforded the same opportunities or has the same means as others. Ronnetta also like the fact that Volunteer Maryland gives her the opportunity to gain valuable work skills as well as do direct service in her community.

From this experience, Ronnetta hopes to expand her network and meet new people. She is also looking to improve her networking and public speaking skills. After her service year, Ronnetta plans to attend graduate school.
