Hope for the future
"I am majoring in psychology and education because of my love of working with children. I hope to either become a preschool or kindergarten teacher or an applied behavioral analysis therapist who works with children suffering from development disorders, such as autism. I believe the University of New Haven is going to help me reach my full potential through the amazing programs and the personal attention from faculty."
Why she is grateful
"The generous scholarship I have received greatly relieves my financial worries. Every dollar is important to a college student. It makes me ecstatic to know that there are people out there who care about the financial burden that a college education can place on students. I love being a student at the University of New Haven and hope to continue here for my graduate education."
