Ben would say that his high school life was definitely not what he expected. Going into high school, Ben didn’t really have any expectations, but it just felt disillusioned to him. He was an introverted person, but also at the same time an extroverted person in high school.

Looking into the future, Ben plans to take a year off from school, so he can decide what he wants to do, but he may decide to join the Marine Corps. However, whatever Ben chooses to do in the future will definitely bring out his full potential and he will be able to do great things.
