Sumedh has eclectic taste in music: He plays the piano and double bass but listens to hip-hop and rap. In addition, he collects random knowledge and is part of his school’s championship-winning quiz bowl team. As a math aficionado, Sumedh participates in Mathcounts and can recite pi up to 75 digits. In his free time, he can be found reading — his favorite book is the classic Animal Farm — or playing Xbox. One day, he would like to visit Dubai to catch a glimpse of the highest building in the world, the Burj Dubai, and explore all the beautiful, modern, urban architecture in the desert city.
