Darie Levermore will graduate from the College of William and Mary of Williamsburg, Virginia, in 2025.
Born in Brooklyn, New York, Darie’s family moved from a suburb of Pennsylvania to Northern Virginia in 2013. It was a large change, due to the environment, as well as switching from a small, private Baptist School, to a larger public school system. Compared to her encounters with her old private school, Darie was confronted with new ideas and experiences, especially with her Black identity during her time in public elementary and high school. While Darie did experience events that made her question her place in society as a Black girl and woman, she still had a support system. Throughout her childhood and adolescence, she had the privilege of often visiting Jamaica to see family, a place she could call her second home where she felt like she belonged.
Now, at the College, Darie is a member of the first cohort of Posse Scholars on William and Mary’s campus, a leadership scholarship and program that promotes individual and community development. She is also a member of the Black Student Organization (BSO) in which she is the Historian on the Executive Board, and she is also a member of the Undergraduate Honor Council. Darie intends to double major in sociology and marketing.
During the summer of 2022, Darie participated in Deloitte’s Global Programs Summer Internship, in which she furthered her experience in project management, and also hoped to network and gain valuable skills that are applying to both her college education, as well as her personal life and future.
After she graduates, Darie plans on pursuing an MBA, to further her experience and skills in the business field.
