“One of the most important things in my life is education,” says Pearland High School junior Shivam Dave. Last year, he placed third individually in the academic decathlon and hopes to improve in his remaining high school career. “What I am most proud of through all these accomplishments is my determination to do the best I possibly can at everything I attempt. I believe that is what has made me so successful,” he said.
