Bio: My name is Katrina Camerato, and I am from Orange, Connecticut, the home of the PEZ factory! I graduated from UConn in 2016 with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies. During my undergraduate experience, I was an RA and Tour Guide for two years. Additionally, I was an intern in the Puerto Rican/Latin American Cultural Center. In this role, I focused on addressing sexuality-based issues present within the Latinx Community via student programming. These opportunities played a pivotal role in my decision to work as a Student Affairs professional.
After graduation, I began working as a Residence Coordinator at the University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford, Connecticut. Working at an all-women’s institute has helped me find my true definition of womanhood as a young professional, student, and feminist. I am grateful for this experience, as I was able to help young women reach their full potential during their undergraduate experience.
In my free time, I love to shop the clearance racks, paint my nails and hang out with friends. I enjoycooking and trying new recipes from around the world. My favorite color is pink, and I am a big fan of Hello Kitty. I am looking forward to continuing my journey as a student at UConn! Students Today, Huskies Forever.
