Srihari Prasad Gattupalli

I am Srihari Prasad Gattupalli, a 15 year old sophomore at Westerville South High School (Go Wildcats!). I am currently an AP/Honors student, and plan to participate in the International Baccalaureate (IB) program my next school year.
I am widely involved in my school, from the arts, such as Theater, to intellectual pursuits, such as chess, to current affairs, such as a politics club (yes, there is one). Outside of school, I have many passions. One such is in the musical arts, where I play guitar. I play a wide range of styles, with the broadest one being electric and acoustic. I have dabbled in jazz, indulged in Spanish, and partook in classical. As of 2015, I have been playing guitar for about eight years.

Another passion of mine (outside school) is the study of philosophy, especially that of theology. I have always enjoyed giving talks, and engaging in discourse. So obviously, I have a tendency to greatly enjoy public speaking. I have been in many competitions relating to public speaking, and have done very well in them. But my final passion, and nowhere near my least, in that of charity and community service.

From childhood, I volunteered and did community service with my father. From doing Meals-on-Wheels to food kitchens, and walking door-to-door collecting money, I have been involved in non-profit work. I have always felt an altruistic drive within me, one that compels me to even help animals. I have many more interests, such as reading and writing literature, engaging in sport, and much more. I have many more interests, such as reading and writing literature, engaging in sport, and much more.

For my higher studies I would like to pursue business administration and for my career I aim to become an entrepreneur

13. E-Waste: Dark Side of Digital Age >> These days, it's often cheaper and more convenient to buy a new PC than to upgrade an old one. But what happens to those old computers once they've been abandoned for newer models? The refuse from discarded electronics products, also known as e-waste, often ends up in landfills or incinerators instead of being recycled. And that means toxic substances like lead, cadmium and mercury that are commonly used in these products can contaminate the land, water and air.
