Proud to recognize Nekema Hunte

People Inc. is proud to recognize Nekema Hunte whose exceptional work in our field has earned her recognition as a Black Achiever in Western New York. These awards honor outstanding individuals and show our community the variety and quality of achievements of African Americans in Western New York. The recognition event will take place on October 11 at the Adam’s Mark.

Nekema, who was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, moved to Western New York in 2000 to attend the University at Buffalo. She soon realized she wanted to work in the human and social services field and, in 2007, would join the People Inc. family as direct care staff.

Nekema now works as a program manager in our Personal Enrichment Program. Previously, she worked in group homes and provided hands on care to the men and women we serve. She has also worked in Day Habilitation facilities as a primary instruction and support management specialist. Through all that she does, Nekema works to help our individuals to be integrated into the community and reach their goals in life.

As she now works to obtain a degree in sociology, she hopes to further her education even more with a master’s degree and a doctorate in clinical psychology. She also dreams of one day opening a health center with an array of services and service providers for people with these disabilities to come to, feel comfortable at and know they are getting the right services.

If all of that weren’t enough, Nekema is active in her church and even owns her own business, “A Piece of This A Piece of That,” selling hair accessories, bowties, and soon, t-shirts.

“I want to thank People Inc. for the experience they have given me ,” said Nekema. “It has helped to shape who I am today.”

Nekema is a true example of a People Inc. success story. Please join us in congratulating her in this great honor.
