2017 Scholarship Recipient
Amber Fontenelle is the daughter of Jacinta and Phillip Fontenelle of St. Lucia, who immigrated to the U.S. where they raised two older siblings (both college graduates). Amber was born in Newark, Delaware and is currently attending Cecil College in Maryland, majoring in Art and Design. She has a passion for animals, art and science. Most of her artwork incorporates animals. As an artist, she wants to use her artwork to share with the world the culture, traditions and beauty of the Caribbean islands; that one cannot see or know about from a resort or hotel. She dreams of the day when her artwork will assist in saving endangered species endemic to the islands. In her free time she enjoys playing video games, writing, drawing and listening to music.
