• About:

      Tamar Williams is a senior at Hunter majoring in Sociology and minoring in Public Policy. While she has completed the majority of her education in New York, she lived in St. Vincent and the Grenadines for two and a half years where she graduated from St. Vincent Girls’ High School in 2011. While there, she acquired an interest for public policy and advocacy through her father who is involved in politics. At Hunter, Tamar is part of both the JFEW Scholar Program and the Public Service Scholar Program. She is also a recipient of the Mother’s Day Scholarship.

      Tamar is currently the Lead Pharmacy Technician at a CVS Pharmacy in Williamsburg where she uses her interactions with customers as inspiration for a future career in advocating for better health policies. She hopes to pursue an MPH with a focus in Health Policy and Administration, and to potentially work in NYC government. It is her hope that by doing so, she may be able to directly have an influence on the policies that affect NYC residents and help to address the disparities which exist amongst minorities in the city. Tamar is also interning with NYC Administration for Children’s Services in the Early Care and Education Department. While here, she is actively involved in writing new policy and influencing the use of updated technology to improve childcare in NYC.
