Michael Weston
Co-Valedictorian, El Dorado High School

After I graduate from high school, I will attend either Vanderbilt University or UC Santa Barbara for at least four years. My plan for college is to study various sciences and, in doing so, decide on a single area of concentrated study. After college, I plan to have a career in scientific research and hope to have a beneficial impact on society.

I plan to attend Folsom Lake College and then transfer to UC Davis or UC Berkeley. I am going to major in computer engineering and hopefully work at a major technology company like Microsoft.

I plan on attending UC Riverside under the honors program next fall where I will be studying computer science in the Bourns College of Engineering. During and after college I hope to obtain internships and a job in my field so I can make an impact in the world of technology.

In the fall, I plan to attend Simpson University, located in Redding. There, I intend on majoring in cross-cultural studies with a specialization in Transformational Community Development. My dream is to reach third-world countries in need and provide for the peoples of those nations.

After high school, I will be attending Montana State University in Bozeman, Mont., and I am majoring in exercise science. I eventually want to be a physical therapist specializing in sports physical therapy.

Above all, I am an individual. I don’t think anyone should be defined by societal expectations and cultural standards. I believe that college is a great fit for many people. But the truth is, I’m not ready to go to college yet. I love too many things and I’m not very good with commitment. It may seem crazy but I dream of traveling. I want to see the world, and experience many different places, cultures and people. After high school, with my dream in my hand, I am going to backpack through Europe and hopefully the rest of the world eventually. I am going to go, see and experience. I am going to learn, understand, and feel deeply. I am going to find myself, not within the boundaries of this town or school, but of the world.
