My name is Hursh R. Jha. I am attending The Village School as a senior on the Village Merit Scholarship. I have been at Village since third grade, so it feels like a second home to me. I really am a STEM geek so I was surprised when a creative writing piece of mine was published in a book of poetry – it gave me confidence that I could venture out of my comfort zone of numbers and facts. I play Water Polo competitively and I like playing Super Smash. Houston, like my school, is a melting pot of cultures and I enjoying experiencing different ways of life in its vibrant environment.
