Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Students at West Early College hardly ever get ask this question. Do you ask yourself that question? We interviewed four students from each grade to see how they felt about the future and not the future with school.

And what would it be?, Are you serious about being successful and reaching this goal?, Lastly does anyone inspire you? If so who?.
