Bio: Hi y’all! My name is Santana Mowbray. I was born and raised in Port Antonio, Jamaica but now reside in New Haven, Connecticut where I teach Spanish to high school sophomores and juniors. I attended The University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!) where I studied Criminal Justice and Spanish. Shortly after graduating in 2015, I chose to serve as a Teach for America corps member because I am passionate about working with and advocating for low-income, first-generation students. During my time at UGA, I served as a resident assistant for three years and was involved in numerous other organizations that sparked my interest in student affairs.
In my spare time, I enjoy dancing, listening to music, and traveling to new countries. I love scented candles, anything coconut-flavored, the color red and spicy foods. I also currently play netball for a club team here in CT. I am excited to begin this journey at UConn. Go Huskies!
