Childhood to Adulthood – How was the transition from your childhood into adulthood/teenage and what good and bad things you remember?
Dr. Darlene Williams: My transition personally was great. There were no issues or concerns. Professionally my career elevated rapidly, thus I was often the only Black women in leadership amongst my peers. This presented challenges related to racism, discrimination and persistent microaggressions, thus it was a difficult transition but with support, faith, and determination, I was able to preserve.
Struggle – What hardships you faced during your life?
Dr. Darlene Williams: Over the last three years I have faced the most difficult challenge of my life. Both my parents transitioned to Glory after difficult health challenges. I cared for both my parents during their illness, but I cared for my mother in my home for hospice care. The last few months of their time was very emotional, but I am grateful that I was selected to have this special and intimate time. It was awesome learning so much from them every day – it was so rewarding and such an honor. I’m eternally grateful that I was trusted with such an important task.
