I am a nerd at heart, I love anime.
Favorite NYIT Experience
That would have to be the people I have met since and worked with here in NYIT. For me it has been a warm and pleasant experience. But the most profound moment was when I joined the Self Defense Club I met a group of wonderful individuals who have now become my family. We support each other just as a family working out at the gym, playing pool, anything. Plus we do martial arts. I couldn’t be happier!
Why I chose NYIT
I liked the idea of being and going to college in the city. Central Park is located across the street and when it gets warm the atmosphere changes completely. Aside from the location NYIT has a lot of resources and opportunities that prepare you in becoming a professional.
