Meet today’s Takeover Tuesday, Karishma Rentia ‘22! Karishma will be be featured on our Instagram today to show up her life as a @uconnalumni, a UConn School of Public Policy Master’s Student, and reflect on her time as a Husky!

“Hi everyone!
My name is Karishma Rentia and I graduated from the University of Connecticut this past May with a Bachelors in Political Science. During my time at UConn I held many titles such as: the Undergraduate Student Government (USG) Vice President of the UConn Hartford Campus; the Pre-Law Vice President; a Senator for USG; Chair of Programming; Student Trustee Elections Committee member and so much more. Through all of these leadership opportunities at UConn, I was able to meet so many people that helped guide me through my undergrad. I am now a first semester graduate student at the UConn School of Public Policy where I plan to graduate with a Masters Degree in Public Administration. I also work at a Sephora in Manchester where I get to see many familiar faces from campus on a regular basis. I look forward to sharing a little glimpse into my day talking about my time at UConn as an undergrad and as a masters student.”

Meet today’s Tuesday Takeover, Samir Ahmed ‘22! Samir will be featured on our Instagram today to show you his life as a @uconnalumni and talk about his time as a Husky!

“My name is Samir and I graduated in May 2022. I started at UConn Waterbury and moved up to Storrs with a bunch of people that I would end up becoming friends with to this day and I expect beyond. My *5* years at UConn were definitely bumpy, but I succeeded by my own definition and that’s what I feel is most valuable. I graduated with an economics degree, but right now I’m actually an assistant manager at Walmart. This may seem unconventional out of college, but I feel it’s the right move for various reasons that I will get into more. My hope is that by sharing my story, I’ll be able to alleviate some stress and anxiety about what’s to come and show why to celebrate being being both a UConn student and a soon to be graduate.”
