Hi there, I hope you’ve been having a good day – welcome to my blog!
It’s funny how writing about literally anything else is so much easier than writing about yourself, isn’t it? Hi! I’m Katrina, a 21-year-old college student-turned-blogger majoring in Biomedical Engineering with a minor in Journalism at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). Above anything else, I am passionate about helping other people, and I hope to one day use my degrees to both create and inspire change in the medical industry so that no one feels limited by their circumstances. Right now, I want to work in research & development for medical devices, but my goals are always evolving.
I love bubble tea, live shows, acoustic guitar, and writing in my Bullet Journal. I have a strong appreciation for a good cup of coffee and a great book, and I spend way too much money on makeup and new notebooks (tbh, that’s what everyone else says, but I don’t think you can ever have too much makeup or too many notebooks!). I’ve been dancing since I was a little girl, and I still love to choreograph and dance for my college dance team.
When I’m not doing homework or studying or blogging, you can probably find me in New York City (my favorite place to ever exist!) exploring or taking a dance class. I love traveling to new places, and I just recently returned from studying abroad in the United Kingdom! (Click here to find all of my posts on my adventures abroad)
About the Blog
I started Yours Truly, Katrina during my sophomore year of college because I love to write, and after seeing a bunch of wonderful college blogs online I figured I could give it a go, too! It is meant to be a place for me to record my college adventures and offer some [hopefully] helpful tips and tricks that I’ve learned along the way on college life, career preparation, and navigating college as a female in STEM. More than that, however, I hope that my blog can be a place where everyone can feel welcome. Yours Truly, Katrina was named after an old favorite song of mine that always reminded me to never settle for anything less than what I aspire to be, and I hope that I can offer a little bit of inspiration to you, too.
Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you’ll continue on this journey with me.
