Bashir Wyatt – San Diego MET High School, Class of 2010

During Bashir’s sophomore year, he interned at the San Diego Hall of Champions Sports Museum and the Linda Vista Teen Center. He thought he wanted to be a recording artist, but decided, after completing Physics and Chemistry that he was interested in the sciences. He started a new internship his junior year at the Fab Lab, a fabrication laboratory in City Heights affiliated with MIT’s Bits and Atoms program. Bashir worked for a year and a half with mentor Katie Rast learning how science, engineering and computer skills are used in the “real world.”

As the only Met High’s Gates Millennium Scholar, Bashir was accepted into many colleges, including: UC Riverside, Santa Barbara and Berkeley, San Diego, San Francisco and Long Beach State, and his number choice U.S.C. where he will begin his freshman year as a Health & Humanities major.
