Biographical Description: Thora F. Williams
My name is Dr. Thora F. Williams, a native of the Caribbean who has lived in the United States for many years. I am a person of great strength and vision for helping others. I am able to cultivate team building and collaboration among any group to which I belong. I see myself as a lifelong learner, very inquisite, and always searching for information of interest. I am an advocate for equality, especially among women and youth with shared decisioning making and diversity as focal points for whatever I do to help others. Reading and writing are among my interest, with goals for empowering stakeholders with enhanced self-esteem.
My growth has evolved from my pursuits in the area of academe. The acquisition of three degrees from different universities has given me the capacity to immerse myself in research, while gaining relevant knowledge on various topics. I have worked as an educator throughout my career. I am excited to be a participant within the organization. Expansion of my writing skills while improving my intellectual capital is very important to me on my journey in life to becoming a fully-fledged writer.
I'm the Founder and co-creator of Sophia and I love to create new things. I have a deep passion for education and technology, and I spend a lot of time thinking about how they could come together more effectively. I earned my bachelor's degree in U.S. History from the University of Wisconsin and my MBA from the University of Minnesota. I'm also the proud father of three daughters who give me a lot of great feedback on how to improve Sophia. I hope you'll send me your thoughts and ideas about Sophia. You can also feel free to share your thoughts on education, technology, American history (my personal passions are presidential and immigration history), music, songwriting, or baseball. I’d love to hear from you. - Don
