My name is Samuel Sathiareuben Gurupatham, although my preferred name is Reuben. I was born in Austin, Texas on October 27, 1994, and I am 13 years old. Some of my many achievements are being selected to the International Baccalaureate (I.B.) program, finalist position in speech and spelling competitions at the school-level, winning gold medals/first place at school and regional-level science competitions, and being invited to participate in the 2008 Canada-Wide Science Fair. Apart from my strong academic involvements, I have volunteered in care-giving facilities, actively participated in clubs, bands and choirs. I hold important leadership positions in many of these extracurricular activities, such as being the lead trombonist in my school jazz band. Apart from these accomplishments, I enjoy playing mini-league soccer, swimming (life guard training), as well as watching professional sports. I also enjoy playing electronic games during my free time. In the future, I hope to continue taking leadership roles in various activities and finish my schooling years in the I.B. program. I would like to receive post-secondary education towards qualifying as a specialist medical doctor.
