Grace graduated from Bulkeley High School and is now attending Trinity College.
“The first few weeks at Trinity College have been exciting! I am getting to know people from all over the world with different backgrounds, and experiences. My first year seminar, InterArts, is a diverse group of young artists. The most important lesson that this class has taught me is that unique individuals can create great work, but groups of unique individuals create stronger work. Aside from providing me with essential funds to attend Trinity College and gain this experience, the Hartford Promise Scholarship has given me a great support network of Promise Scholars. I hope to one day use the lesson that I learned in InterArts to work with other Promise Scholars and Hartford natives to create significant work that will advance our city. Thank you, Hartford Promise!
