Fontaine Chambers

pnet-bio-chambers-2To say the least, Chambers is getting the most out of college. A junior at the University of Connecticut, she has been a Dean’s List student majoring in political science and government. She has taken advantage of UConn’s study abroad program and learned in places like London and Rome.

She also been a claims intern — rotating in different areas — with Travelers, the insurance company based in Hartford, Conn., and has been an intern with INROADS as well. And yet, she has also found time to act upon her passion for mentorship.

Chambers has been a vice president for community outreach for Good Year Quality, a campus organization devoted to enrichment through mentorship. She has been a student representative for UConn’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions and an office assistant for her school’s Center for Students with Disabilities. Lastly, she has served as a peer advisor for UConn’s Student Support Services, which pairs incoming, mostly first-generation, freshman with students who have navigated a similar experience.
