This week in class I talked to Jake. Jake is the same age as me, 19. I learned that Jake started college at age 16. He went to Long Beach Poly High School, there he finished high school early so he could start college and be ahead. He is a Business major right now but he doesn’t really like it and he wants to change his major to Computer Science. The reason why he was going to get a Business major was because he wanted to open up a business, however he made a very successful business without having that major. His business drafts Aerospace technology, it is like engineering. Jake DJ’s, however his goal is to be a big time DJ. All the money he makes from his business goes towards his DJ equipment. When I asked him about his art background, he said the only background he has is his music. He says he draws like a “3 year old,” similarly to me. He lives in Belmont Shore currently, and commutes to school everyday. It was very nice meeting Jake, and he definitely going to be a successful kid.
