Sports played: Soccer.
When did you start at CRMS?
Freshman year. I saw an ad in the newspaper in India for this school.
What was your first impression of the United States?
It’s kind of a different planet. At the beginning, it was hard with the language and culture, but you get used to it.
Do you ever get to go back home?
I go every summer. That’s it.
Have you made college plans yet?
Right now, I’m going through the process. I really don’t know.
What’s the biggest difference between the U.S. and India?
I guess the opportunities, the American dream. I didn’t like the educational system in India. I wanted something different. Here I can focus on different things, like soccer.
What are sports like in India?
It’s getting big. Soccer is getting big. You don’t get a lot of time to do sports in India. Just academics.
What other sports do you do?
I climb and snowboard. I like to do everything here. I had never seen snow before I came out here.
What’s your favorite sport?
Soccer, definitely. I used to play cricket.
Do you get to play cricket any more?
Yeah, I taught a couple of my friends just on weekends. Sometimes I’ll play if I have free time.
Who’s your favorite soccer player?
Ronaldinho. He’s a God against men.
Do you have a favorite sports team?
I don’t really watch TV much ever. No.
What’s your favorite subject in school?
Philosophy, I guess. It’s about creating your own world. The possibilities are endless.
What do you hope to study in college?
I’m really interested in philosophy and psychology, to see where that goes.
What do you hope to do professionally once you’re out of school?
I really want to be a photographer for NGC ” National Geographic. I’d like to go around the world and take pictures.
Is photography something you’re big into now?
I’ve taken a couple courses. It’s not like I roam around with a camera all the time.
