Belma graduated from Pathways Academy of Technology and Design and is currently a freshman at the University of Connecticut.
“I am currently an MIS major at the University of Connecticut. Since being at the university, I have learned a lot about myself; not only as a student, but as an individual working towards a bright future. I have joined many clubs, and participated in many events to give back to communities around me. I have also joined the largest co-ed business fraternity in the nation; Alpha Kappa Psi. None of this would have been possible without the help of Hartford Promise. This scholarship has not only helped lift a financial burden, it has provided me with a network of motivated individuals like myself. The city of Hartford has given me many amazing opportunities, and I am beyond grateful for this one.”
