Diversity in the modern world is more than just skin color – it’s gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, social background, and most important of all, diversity of thought.
Human differences in thinking and perspective are individual qualities, not racial qualities—the more we depart from honoring individual uniqueness, the more we move toward an arbitrary racial mix that substitutes skin color for real human diversity.
Currently serving as the Executive Director of the Roy C. Buley Community Center, Qiana O’Neal’s professional career might best be described as eclectic. Qiana is the former Marketing & Communications Director for the Muncie YMCA and United Way of Delaware County, the Founder/Director of the Muncie YMCA Black Achievers Program, professional vocalist, private marketing consultant, and Zumba Instructor. It is Qiana’s personal goal to share her knowledge and resources for the betterment of the community. A Muncie native and graduate of Ball State University, Qiana first developed her love for public service while visiting Kenya, Africa on a missionary work trip with other students from Oral Roberts University (Tulsa, OK) where she also attended. Since then, Qiana has traveled to 5 additional countries and has devoted much of her time and energy to service work.
Qiana is a member of Destiny Christian Center International where her pastor is her father, Keith O’Neal. She volunteers to run the church’s marketing and communications efforts. When she is not working, she loves to travel, read, listen to music, and Zumba.
