JOSIAH WILLIAMS,  UNIVERSITY OF BUFFALO – 100 BLACK MEN OF SYRACUSE

JOSIAH WILLIAMS, UNIVERSITY OF BUFFALO – 100 BLACK MEN OF SYRACUSE

My name is Josiah Williams, I am 25 years of age. I currently work at Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield Health Insurance Company and started in 2019. Prior to my career in Health Care, I graduated from the University at Buffalo in 2018 with a Bachelor’s of Art degree in Sociology.
I was born and raised in Syracuse, New York and graduated from Jamesville-Dewitt High-School in 2013. I was a mentee of the 100 Black Men of Syracuse since grade school. In grade school I attended the 100 Black Men “Saturday Academy” and learned more about my history and culture of Africans and African-Americans than I ever did in grade school or High-School. I also attended the STEP 1 mentee program where I learned how to effectively communicate with others and build life skills that I currently use today. Finally, the Historical Black College Tour gave me the inspiration to pursue a collegiate career to better myself. I cannot be more thankful to the 100 Black Men of Syracuse and the opportunities they have provided for men like me in pointing us in the right direction.
