TRIO Upward Bound Assistant Program Director

B.A. The University of Vermont
Rahelle is an alum of the University of Vermont, receiving both her B.A. and M.Ed. She was born in Sri Lanka and grew up there until her move to Burlington, Vermont at the age of fourteen where she attended Burlington High School; one of Upward Bound’s target schools. Having shared similar experiences as many of the students she now serves, Rahelle hopes to be a strong advocate for first-generation and limited-income students, while empowering and helping them create tools for a positive trajectory in high school and beyond.
