Bamberg Middle High School
Name: Miles Younkin
What do you plan on doing after graduation?
I will be attending Grand Rapids Community College then Grand Valley State (Michigan) and will be majoring in Education focusing in History and Foreign Languages.
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 opportunities afforded by my time overseas have been memorable. Travelling to European and Asian countries like China, Bali, Thailand, Germany, Italy, Belgium and their famous cities such as Munich, Nuremburg, Rome, Venice, Cinque Terra, Beijing and Seoul (Korean Old Town) really made history live for me.
What will you miss most as you look back on your DoDDS-Europe overseas school experience?
I will miss the travel opportunities, the food, the drinking age (be responsible :)), the people and the environment of Germany.
What advice would you give to the current underclassmen?
Get away from the base to learn about the cities and people where your parent/sponsor is stationed. You have an opportunity few kids get to have.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Teaching History and perhaps Foreign Language to DoDDS students in any location I can get hired.
