Aditya is a hardworking and athletic student. He runs Cross Country and Track and is a 4-year varsity runner. This year he made the All-White Division for Cross Country and was also the captain.  He’s part of the JFK Academic Team and is a National Honor Society member. In his free time, Aditya enjoys watching TV, working out, going outside, and making plans with his friends. If he had to use three adjectives to describe himself he’d use, “adventurous, energetic and optimistic.”

How it felt to be Senior of the Month

When Aditya found out he was senior of the month, he was initially surprised as he didn’t think that he would be chosen out of all the involved seniors in his grade. However, he said it felt amazing to be chosen to be one. He’d like to thank all of his past teachers for shaping him into who he is today. 

Future Plans

Post-Graduation, Aditya plans on furthering his education by studying pharmacy at the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy at Rutgers. Some advice he has for underclassmen is, “Enjoy high school. Go out and make memories because as cliche as it sounds, it goes by too fast.”

Everyone at The Torch wishes Aditya the best of luck in the future!
