All of us trip and fall at points in our lives. Some of us stay down, too scared from the pain to get up, or just too unwilling to work to get up. Some of us get up, but we are hesitant to go forward, and just stay where we are. Some of us get up and move forward, slowly, but never with the pace and confidence that we earlier had in our stride.

I am Adarsha Shivakumar, a 15 year old guy. I am a sophomore at the College Preparatory School in Oakland, CA. I live in Pleasant Hill, CA, with my parents and sister. I am an environmental enthusiast who is the founder and executive director of Project Jatropha, an international collaboration designed to help alleviate rural poverty and stop environmental destruction in rural south India. I love reading, as well as watching various kaiju (Japanese for “giant monster”) movies. I like swimming; my hero, Coach Doug, taught me how to swim even after many failures. I’m an intense, enthusiastic, determined, and hyperactive individual with a mind that puts the Flash to shame when racing. I’m a fan of a diverse series of shows, ranging from Family Guy, to Mythbusters, to Man vs. Wild, to Spongebob, to Futurama, to Robot Chicken. I thoroughly enjoy science fiction and fantasy books, such as the Bartimaeus Trilogy and the Space Odyssey series, and aspire to become a great scientist and world dictator one day. I like to seize the day, and I’m known for a voice that is unrivaled in volume and ability to traverse long distances through any barriers. I’m a cynical viewer of humanity who wants to improve our society as a whole by starting with those on the lowest rungs of society.
