From his first day at Mountain View, JAHNAV DESAI noticed that Mountain View High School was different from his base school. He saw how hard the administrators, counselors, teachers and staff worked to help students be successful and he decided to change his thinking about himself. Filled with a new belief in his own abilities, he learned to “work smart” to accomplish his goals. He developed his interest in photography and videography through his contributions to the Mountain View Mirror. He took advantage of the career fair and other career center services to develop his professional goal to go into Information Technology and applied to Northern Virginia Community College. With scholarship assistance, he will be ready to enroll in classes starting Fall 2014.
