From working as a resident assistant to leading as the vice president of the USC Student Gerontology Association, Tari Williams has found her experiences at the University of Southern California to be incredibly impactful in shaping her future career in the gerontology field. Tari’s experiences have filled her “with growth” and have taught her a “plethora of lessons.” In the end, amidst periods of both stress and joy, Tari accounts all of her work with USC and the Leonard Davis School of Gerontology to have shaped her into the person she is today. Tari also looks forward to completing her MAASM degree in December while also working full-time. “I am forever grateful for my time with the Trojan Family, and luckily, once a Trojan, always a Trojan,” she said. Fight on, Tari!
