While he might just be just be a Science student in high school, make no mistake; this senior in the IBDP is interested in any subject you can think of - be it cognitive psychology or game theory! Currently the head boy of Neerja Modi School, Kartikey has a number of achievements to his credit.

"I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly."
