About John Murad

 I was born in Lakeside, California and now attend Valhalla High school and am currently a junior. I plan to graduate in June of 2016 and hopefully be admitted into a college of my choice. The 3 colleges I am going to apply to are SDSU, USD, and UCSD mainly because they are all local and require no change of location. My goal when entering college is to major in accounting, some sort of medical field, or enter law school. Accounting is the main major I am striving for because it fits into my future perfectly because after I have completed my college education  I intend on inheriting the family businesses and elevate them into new heights.  A business degree will make for a much easier management because the knowledge will be there.  A main goal in my life that I want to accomplish is for me to become so stable finically that my father wont need to work anymore in his life.
