Monique graduated from the Nursing Academy at Hartford Public High School and is now attending the University of Connecticut.
“I came to college with a new mindset and a positive attitude. My goal right now is to do my best, make everyone proud and to finish my first semester strong. I am absolutely thankful for the Harford Promise Scholarship because if it wasn’t for this foundation I do not know how I would make it through my first semester. This scholarship had impacted my life because they give me the opportunity to continue my education, to keep my academics up and to work hard as scholar.”
