About Me:

I am Nicholas Yousif. I was born in August 11,1998 in El Cajon, California. I live in Rancho San Diego with my parents and two brothers and go to Valhalla High School. I have many goals I would like to accomplish in this next four years. Some more unrealistic than others, like me wanting to be able to dunk on an NBA regulation basketball rim, but still goals. My biggest goal as of right now is to make it to college, any university that is willing to accept me I will be thankful for and feel blessed. My dream colleges that I am applying to include SDSU, UCSD, PLNU, Michigan State, and The Ohio State University

Manager

Giant New York Pizza

I work as the manager for my Uncle's pizza place in Point Loma California. As manager I pretty much do everything at the restaurant. I answer the phone, work as the cashier, and know how to make everything on our menu (salads, fried foods, sandwiches, Philadelphia cheesesteaks) except the pizzas which we leave for our employees that are skilled in making them. I also occasionally go on deliveries and run our social media accounts.
