My name is Benjamin Marc Novian. I was born to Farhad Novian and Lisa Sachs Novian, half Persian - half “East Coast – New York,” you might say. I am in the 7th grade and attending Milken Community School with great pride, where I am reinforcing my Jewish and other important studies.
My hobbies are skiing, soccer, swimming, agriculture and, of course, video game programming and design. I love exotic food and have a wild food palate. I play the keyboard and love to listen to podcasts very much. I am an avid reader and love to follow politics, especially current affairs and appreciate the art of debate. The newspaper is my go to source! Traveling with my family is my favorite thing to do. I have been very lucky to visit some amazing places on this planet, especially, Israel, Alaska and the Southern Mediterranean coast.
I can’t wait to see more, especially Japan and South Africa. I love my brother Alex very much as we are a great team and we have fun together all the time.

Per Ben, “we should all live freely in a robust democracy, free from tyranny and dictatorial rule.”
