Aarav Gupta is a junior at Summit High school and will be graduating in 2022. In addition to completing grades 9 and 10 with Summa Cum Laude status, he received a New Jersey Science league award after participating in numerous physics competitions. As a part of his high school tennis team, he received the Hilltopper Award not only for outstanding performance, but also for sportsmanship and discipline, which he credits in part to earning his black belt in Tae Kwon Do years earlier. His love for business and entrepreneurship inspired him to start the SHS business club and author a book about young entrepreneurs and their challenges which will be published in August of 2021. Participating in the forensics club has improved Aarav’s communication skills and helped him to move out of his comfort zone. In fact, he is currently an anchor for his high school’s news show and was chosen to be one of the Peer Leaders who help his high school become a better place. He is thankful for the opportunity to participate in Speech and Debate and grateful for wonderful coaches and teammates that have helped him along the way.
