Mateo Aristizabal

Master of Infrastructure Planning

I was born in Medellin, Colombia and moved to Stamford, Connecticut when I was 2 years old. My family and I moved to Jersey in 2011 and I am proud to call it home. As a first-generation Latino college student graduating from NJIT with a Master’s degree in Infrastructure Planning I can honestly say that I haven’t done this alone. Above all things, I know that I wouldn’t be here if it were not for the grace of God and the support of my family and friends.Though this journey may be done, I look forward to what the future holds. Upon graduation I will be working with Ballinger, a firm based in Philadelphia!
