About me:
I am a transfer student at NJIT majoring in Biomedical Engineering with a concentration of mechanics. I am currently member of the Biomedical Engineering Society as well as the knitting club.  I have a background in graphic design and in my spare time I enjoy knitting, reading, and learning more about up and coming technological advances.

Why I chose to attend NJIT:
I believe that NJIT has more to offer all students in relation to their major and track with real hands on experiences that will help me along on my career journey.

What I like best about NJIT:
There is a wide variety of research, studies, clubs, and events on campus that will allow people of all talents to thrive.

My goals after graduation:
Once I graduate, I want to be part of a team that utilizes new advancements, such as 3D printing, to create and improve medical implants and prosthetics. 

My advice to prospective students:
Don’t be afraid to ask for help. There are so many resources and people who only wish for prospective students to strive. Although we are all trying to reach our goals after graduation, that does not mean we have to do things alone. A little guidance could go a long way.
