Melvin's Story

My passion is law.

My passion for law runs deep. Despite all the challenges my father has faced, he decided to pursue a career in law enforcement. This to me is a reason why I find law so fascinating. Anyone that puts their mind to what they want to accomplish in the field of law can create a career from it with a lot of hard work and dedication no matter what their upbringing was.

Attending UConn Pre-College Summer Program will help me pursue my passion for law because it will be the spark to my college level learning and understanding of law. I have a basic understanding of law but with the completion of this program, I will have both a deeper love and desire to pursue this career path.

A Note from Ms. Scicutella, Melvin's Mentor

Melvin is very passionate. He has made it very clear that he wants to continue his career in criminal justice and law. When I first met Melvin in an interview, he told me how his father was his hero and inspiration in his life. Melvin is only a junior in high school, yet he is one of the most passionate students I know. I have had the pleasure of being Melvin's mentor for the past year and I could not be prouder of the young man he is. He will greatly benefit from attending the UConn Pre-College Summer Program.
