I hope to attend drag racing school sometime within a year after I graduate, so I can achieve my goal of becoming a drag racer. I plan to achieve my goals because I know that if I truly put my mind to something, I can do anything I want to do.

The Times asked 18 high school seniors about their plans, and only one said he was undecided about his future.

I have my own stamp on life.’ Next year I’m hoping to go to U.S.C., so my fingers are crossed to get accepted. If I don’t get into U.S.C., I’m kind of just hoping for a school out of San Diego – really kind of just want to spread my wings, kind of.
