Hails from: Olathe, Kansas
Occupation: Spelling Bee Champ
Known for: Correctly spelling “Laodicean”–meaning: lukewarm or indifferent, particularly in matters of religion or politics–to clinch the 82nd Scripps National Spelling Bee last week. Being a Hardass Asian Parents’ Ultimate Wet Dream–watch Kavya’s interview with the Chenbot where she describes how she juggled training for the spelling bee with a busy schedule of homework, practicing the violin, and learning Indian dance, and how her future plans include going to “a good medical school.”
Damn, Kavya, do you know how proud you’ve made your parents? Wait, what are we saying? Of course you do. Enjoy it while it lasts, girl. Enjoy it, milk it, work it–just don’t expect something crazy to come from this, like getting a sweet ride for your 16th birthday, okay? Trust us, we speak from experience.
