Amber graduated from Bulkeley High School and now attends the University of Connecticut.
“Going to college for the first time can be a pretty overwhelming experience. There are so many people from all over the world who have a completely different background than I do. It is nice that there are other Hartford Promise Scholars on campus that I can relate to. Not to mention classes are already a lot to take in. I am so thankful I do not have to add financial worries on top of that. It is all because of the Hartford Promise Award that I get to focus on my education and what I want to do in the future.”
