About Me:
I am a second-year BME Albert Dorman Honors College student. On campus I am involved in the Biomedical Engineering Society, American Chemical Society, Pre-Dental Society, Project Dental All, and am a Chemistry Tutor for Freshman Chemistry. In my free time I enjoy listening to music, watching videos, and exploring.

 Why I chose to attend NJIT:
I came to NJIT because of the small college experience and its respected BME department that offers so much support for its undergraduate students. The small student to professor ratio encourages an environment for learning that larger universities cannot offer. The small campus allows students to get around easily to where they need to be and not waste time with transportation.

 What I like best about NJIT:
What makes NJIT great is the people you meet and how close you are able to be with everyone, something that’s not possible at a larger university. Especially in the BME department, you take the same courses for the first two years no matter what track you want to be, and you get to be around peers with the same interests.

 My goals after I graduate:
I am in the 7-year accelerated NJIT/RSDM program and hope to go to Rutgers School of Dental Medicine after I gradate to pursue my dream of practicing dental medicine.

My advice to prospective students interested in Biomedical Engineering at NJIT:
When you get to NJIT try and seize early opportunities that are offered and come your way. Finding ways to get involved on campus is one of the best ways to make connections with students and staff, and opens up the amount of possibilities that you can do here. This is because the earlier you get involved the more credentials you have to continue doing more at NJIT.
