“I’ve always liked helping people”

Mia Williams walks down Wisconsin Avenue alone on a Thursday afternoon in Avenues West. Williams grew up in a large family – she’s one of nine kids – and was raised by a single mother. “It was wonderful. I mean, we’re very close, we show a lot of love,” she said. “Whenever there was dinner, everybody sat at the dinner table and ate; there wasn’t any separation, you know. And we’re still very close-knit today.”
