Williams who recently graduated with her Masters’s degree in Counselor Education viral image can be seen posing nude in front of the famed Rattler Statue located on the campus in a post with the caption “Anybody who knows me knows that I’ve been dressing provocative my whole life. There’s a lot of assumptions that have came with me accepting my body. A lot of people questioned my capabilities and intelligence solely based on how I choose to dress. As I’m standing here with my Masters Degree at the tender age of 24, I am the living proof that clothes do not define you. I encouraged every body to embrace their bodies and step outside social norms. “ With love, Terica Williams, M.Ed.
