Rota High School
Name: Michael Mabunay
What do you plan on doing after graduation?
I will be attending University of Maryland University Campus, currently undecided in a major.
What are some of your favorite school memories that you will take with you as you move on to the next chapter of your life?
The travel to other countries with sports teams and the honor band/choir will stay with me for a while. I would never imagine a more unique experience than what I have had.
What will you miss most as you look back on your DoDDS-Europe overseas school experience?
I will miss the NJROTC program and the Golf season. These are two things that I really committed myself to for the past two years, and have greatly impacted my choices in life and who I am today. Traveling for these two programs will always be an experience no other student could have experienced.
What advice would you give to the current underclassmen?
The best advice I could offer to underclassmen is to just get involved with many different activities. No other school in the United States will fly you to European countries for a week. It will open your eyes to places and moments that you'll take with you wherever you go.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In ten years, I see myself in the U.S. Navy as a Seabee. Whether enlisted or officer, I know that I would excel in whatever I am doing. I may also have a family by that time, and hopefully that child will be able to experience the things that I have.
