Laniqua Williams

Profession: Software Engineer at Dollar General & CEO of AKEIN Engineering

ULYPMT Member since October 2015

Why did you join ULYPMT?

I wanted to be more involved in community service and surround myself with other African-American professionals.

What do you enjoy about being a member?

I enjoy being around people who have a passion to excel just as strong as my own.

What’s your favorite community service to date?

I’m a new member so, I have only been to one so far: I volunteered with the Napier Community Center for their Christmas Party.

Any fun facts?

I love older cars from 1968 – 1972. I attend car events and enjoy looking at builds from the ground up

After an assembly line of internships and receiving her B.A. in Public Relations and Marketing, Trina sought to find a career balance between her formal training and a desire to provide programming of substance to under-served communities.
