“In ten years I will be living in Baltimore completing my second year of residency in general surgery and acute trauma care. My hours will be extensive but, I will be sure to also spend time with my friends and family.”- Devon Hitt, Roland Park Country School, University of Pennsylvania

“I see myself putting my good work ethic and amazing Gilman education into all aspects of the restaurant business and climbing up the ladder of success!” – Brendon Hudson, Gilman School, Class of 2012, Culinary Institute of America, Class of 2016

“In ten years I will be an Industrial Organizational Psychologist. I will have a plethora of restaurants on the East Coast. I will have started my mentoring program for underprivileged children all around the nation.” –Keyarra Howard, Garrison Forest School, Marist College

“In ten years I will be living in a major city and working for a design/architectural company.” – Jake Matthai, Gilman School, Class of 2012, University of North Carolina, Class of 2016

“In ten years, I will have completed a master’s program in developmental psychology, and I will be working on getting my doctorate of psychology. I plan to be a developmental specialist at a children’s hospital. Hopefully, I am married with (possibly) one baby.” –Briana Williams, Garrison Forest School, Class of 2012, University of Houston, Class of 2016

“In ten years I will be doing big things.  What are those big things?  I am not sure.  Hopefully after receiving my education at Furman University and following that with a law degree, I will be well on my way to making it as a sports agent prior to becoming a politician.  However, knowing me, the profession I choose to pursue could change tomorrow.  The only thing that I know for sure is that I will hope to call the same place home that I have for the past eighteen years. That place is Baltimore.” Jimmy Peacock, Boys’ Latin School, Class of 2012, Furman University, Class of 2016

“Ten years from now, I will be far away from little Baltimore traveling miles on camelback through the deserts of Mali. It will be during the annual Festival au Desert, the most remote music festival in the world, held on the outskirts of Timbuktu. The days will be hot but the nights will bring the sweet, cool air of the Sahara Desert and the magic of music from over 30 different countries. I will talk to and dance with people from all over the world. When the three day festival is over, I might return home, but then again, I have the rest of the world to explore!” -Emma Koramshahi, Bryn Mawr School, Class of 2012, Wesleyan University, Class of 2016
