Juan Fernandez

Bachelor of Architecture

Hello, my name is Juan Fernandez, I was born in the Dominican Republic and I came here when I was a teenager. From the moment I arrived in New Jersey, I pushed myself to the limit to achieve my goals. The first time I applied to NJIT, I was rejected, but that did not stop me from going to community college and transferring to NJIT with an associate in architecture from UCC. However, I didn't do it alone, my family was there supporting me every step of my journey. That is why I want to acknowledge their dedication to guide me on the right path, this achievement is not only for me but for them as well.
