Samdeesh Thukral

I am Samdeesh Thukral, a seventh-grade student at Riverwatch Middle School in Suwanee, Georgia. In my leisure time, I enjoy a diverse range of activities, including creating and playing video games, immersing myself in literature, assembling PC systems, and engaging in cricket matches. My commitment to community service is paramount in my life. I actively participate in meal donation events, contribute to road cleaning initiatives, and have been volunteering for blood donation drives since the tender age of two. Presently, I am an active member of two esteemed clubs, namely Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) and DECA. Through these affiliations, I have garnered multiple victories in competitions centered around video game and mobile app development and have proudly represented my school at the national level in the History Bee.

My passion for music extends to proficiency in playing the bass clarinet as a member of my school’s band, as well as mastering the intricacies of the Tabla, an Indian percussion instrument, which I have been dedicated to since the age of seven. My journey into the realm of website creation commenced in fourth grade during virtual schooling. Presented with the choice between Google Sites and Google Docs for a project, I opted to explore the former, sparking a newfound fascination that led to the development of numerous websites. The discovery of “We the Future”, facilitated by my social studies teacher, Mrs. Weatherford, captivated me with its unique blend of historical significance and technological innovation. This platform allowed me to meld my passion for website design with my love for history, while deepening my understanding of the constitution.

Being selected as one of the winners of the “We the Future” competition has been a profound and enriching experience. I am immensely grateful to the Constituting America committee and the esteemed judges of “We the Future” for affording me this invaluable opportunity to expand my knowledge and skills. Thank you for considering my contributions and granting me the privilege of being part of this esteemed competition.
