CANYON COUNTRY – There was no talk of becoming ballerinas or race car drivers. There was no mention of being astronauts or legends on the screen. Instead, students at La Mesa Junior High during career day on Friday said they have other things in mind: doctors, scientists and the Marines. Those are the jobs some want, adding that they want to find cures for diseases, serve their country and earn some decent cash. “I think if I find a cure for something, I could make a lot of money,” said Juno Wilson, who aims to be a biochemist.

Outside the classroom, eighth-grader Allison Ronning said she yearns to be a doctor after helping her diabetic grandmother with her shots. Although many already seemed to have their 10- and 20- year career plans mapped out, they were still alert to the politicians, puppeteer and drug dog trainer, who were among the 50 professionals discussing their jobs in front of classrooms. The visitors mentioned the importance of first impressions, internships and education. It wasn’t the first time the young teens have received career advice. “We tell the kids, `You are no longer competing with each other. You are competing with China, India, the whole world,” said Bob Kerman, La Mesa Junior High counselor who coordinated the event. Kerman tells students to get involved with career shadowing in high school to see what the world has to offer. For some, the future is with the Marines. After hearing stories during the school year about English teacher Jose Malave’s days in the Marines, Oscar Cena is raring to join. “It’s better to die for something you care about than to die for nonsense,” the 14-year-old said. Classmate Juan Vargas agreed. The eighth-grader, who’s in the Los Angeles County sheriff’s Explorer program, was already leaning toward a military job and after hearing his teacher’s stories, he wants to join the Marines. “It has to be done by somebody,” he said.
