Nazera is truly a world citizen, having lived in 6 countries before coming to the
US to study. Moving around allowed her to acquire knowledge of various cultures and
people and taught her to adapt to different environments.
Nazera completed her first year of FIT remotely from home. Starting a degree virtually
was challenging, and she was initially concerned about how to meet new people. However,
once on campus, she was able to make strong connections with others and found some
amazing classmates and faculty. She is a natural leader who enjoys being involved
with campus initiatives.
Nazera loves the fast pace of New York City - its role as a fashion capital made it
the right place to pursue her studies and career. In addition, she has found her professors
to be empathetic and helpful and advises new students to take advantage of the wealth
of knowledge FIT professors have.
Outside of school, Nazera is an adrenaline-loving thrill seeker! Her activities include
adventure parks, diving, sprinting, and water sports - anything that gives her a rush.
She is also passionate about working out and a big fan of Bollywood films.
