In her three years at NJIT, Lazoroska has compiled an outstanding academic record. Her grade-point average is 3.96 and her professors describe her as a hard-working student who likes to solve challenging problems. She transferred here from Bergen Community College, where she earned an associate’s degree in engineering science. She made a smooth transition to NJIT. She belongs to three honor societies and is a member of the Society of Women Engineers. She has done class projects in kinetics and reactor design; process dynamics and control as well as engineering cost and control. She also worked on community service projects. She collected toys for orphaned children; did a book drive for African school children and helped raise money for families whose members have disabilities.
After she graduates, she hopes to work as a fragrance specialist in the cosmetics industry. She also plans to save enough money to one day start her own company.
