Catrina Nelson

Bachelor of Architecture

If you asked me five years ago, I would never have imagined this day would come. It is unfortunate that we are graduating under these conditions, however it is not a proper reflection of the incredible time I spent at NJIT. When I started, I was a weird, somewhat shy and very insecure person, but going to school here has grounded me and made me confident, talented and secure in my own value. I would have never made it this far without the incredible friends I made -- getting ramen gami, scrambling to the last second to finish our projects and of course, surprising the all-nighters by showing up at 6 am. Additionally without my supportive family and my indispensable boyfriend, I would not have grown into who I am today, being confident and proud of myself. Lastly, the choice to go to NJIT was the best decision of my life, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the experience that I received here. LinkedIn , Portfolio, Instagram
