Meet the Scholar: Karina Rivera

Karina graduated from Bulkeley High School and is now attending Eastern Connecticut State University. 

“I am currently majoring in Criminology, minoring in Psychology and working towards my certification as a Behavior Analyst. Hartford Promise has given me the opportunity of a lifetime to  have a full college experience by allowing me to live on campus. Many students, as well as parents, may find that this time of year can be one of the most stressful; but Hartford Promise  has made the transition into the “college life” easy by allowing me not to stress too much on how I will  be able to afford college, but help me focus more on just being the best student I can be. Thank you, Hartford Promise!”
