Family & Background Main Menu Hi! My name is Ameil Mitesh Kantilal Hirabhai Midaas Patel. I was born in Corona, CA but grew up for ten years in Williams, AZ. I am an Indian- English American and I am proud of it. My family of four includes my father, mother, older sister, and myself. My family originates from the Indian state of Gujarat. From birth I have been raised as a Hindu, although I’m not a traditional vegetarian. My parents are both English citizens. My father was born in Nairobi, British Kenya and my mother was born in Wolverhampton, England. I am currently a junior at Redlands High School. By best friend is Andrew Peppler, although I do have close networks of many friends.Corona, CA Williams, AZGujaratHinduNairobiBritish KenyaWolverhampton Redlands High School
Religious & Cultural Background Main Menu Gujarat My family originates from the Indian state of Gujarat from a small village called Bhuvasan in Navsari District. The closest city to Bhuvasan is Bardoli. Gujarat is located in North-Western India and is very close the Indo-Pak border. Its capital is Gandhinagar and its largest city is Ahmedabad. The official language of this state is Guajarati but many people also speak English, Hindi, Urdu, and Sindhi. Gujarat is the 10 th largest state in India in terms of population. Famous people that are from Gujarat include Mohandas K. Gandhi (Father of India) and Muhammad Ali Jinnah (Father of Pakistan).Gujarat BhuvasanNavsari DistrictBardoliMohandas K. GandhiMuhammad Ali Jinnah HinduismHinduism is often credited as the world’s oldest religion and is the world’s third largest religion after Christianity and Islam. Often credited as one of the last remaining polytheistic religions, it is actually monotheistic. Although there are many gods and goddesses, they are all different representations of God himself. Many Hindus perform daily pujas or prayer rituals followed by an aarti or ritual of worship. The most important books of Hinduism are the Vedas, Bhagavad-Gita, Mahabharata, and Ramayana.pujasaartiVedasBhagavad-Gita MahabharataRamayana
Beyond High School Main Menu Beyond high school, I plan to attend a university. I want to major in Business Administration and have a Concentration in Hospitality Management. I really would love if I could go to a university out of state as opposed to one in California. My dream university is Northern Arizona University (NAU) which is located in Flagstaff, Arizona which ironically is 30 minutes away from my hometown of Williams. I plan to first get a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Bachelor of Business Management (BBM) and then my Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Master of Business Management (MBM).Northern Arizona UniversityFlagstaffWilliamsBachelor of Business AdministrationBachelor of Business ManagementMaster of Business AdministrationMaster of Business Management In the future I do plan to get married and have a family of my own. I would like to get a really big house in a nice town that has a few big events. I do wish to stay in California but maybe move up north to the Bay Area, or possibly move somewhere on the East Coast.
Personal Goals Main Menu In the future, I plan to travel the world. Traveling has always been a fun thing for me. I have currently visited Mexico, Jamaica, The Dominican Republic, England, Scotland, and India. I plan to visit most countries in the European Union, e.g., Italy and Greece, Egypt, China, Kenya, and many more countries. European UnionItalyGreece EgyptChina Although I can read in many languages, I want to become fluent in Gujarati, Hindi, Swahili, Arabic, and Mandarin. These languages either are influential within my life, are recommended to know, or seem really fun to learn.GujaratiHindi
Interests/Hobbies Menu Flat Pennies Languages Videogames Main Menu I have many hobbies that include watching T.V., watching movies, reading books, and surfing the web. My most important hobbies are collection flat pennies, learning languages, and playing videogames. These are things that I will do most of the time when I am free or when I am taking a long break from an intense study session. Sanskrit
Flat Pennies Main Menu Hobbies Menu Flattened coinsFlattened coins or elongated coins, are coins that have been pressed inside a machine and are stamped with a new design. These are typically seen throughout theme parks, zoos, and iconic locations throughout the world. The first elongated coin was made in Chicago, Illinois in 1893 during the World’s Columbian Exposition. Many online communities sell “rare” pennies as well as many accessories that you can use, e.g., bracelets, penny albums, and necklaces. Collectors typically buy “penny albums” in order to store their pennies as well as keep them safe from anything that can damage them.elongated coinsonline communities
Languages Main Menu Hobbies Menu Languages have always been a long time interest of mine. The first foreign language script I learned was Gujarati. Gujarati, unlike English does not have a set alphabet. The “letters” are symbols for different sounds that we tend to make when speaking the language. From there it was a simple task of finding common aspects in other languages and teaching myself. From there I taught myself, with the aid of websites, to read and write in Hindi’s script called Devanagari (also the script used for Sanskrit and Marathi), Telugu, and finally Arabic.GujaratiHindiDevanagariTelugu All of these languages may come from different language families but all of their scripts are similar in one aspect. The “letters” are symbols of sounds. Much like in Mandarin, the different emphasis on key vowels can change the meaning of a word, all of these languages have the same concept. To those that only speak English, when presented with the three “shuh” sounds in Gujarati, we aren’t adapted to hearing a difference. Each “shuh” sounds has a different nasal tone, throat tone, or emphasis. This is the main reason why Asian languages and scripts may be difficult. Telugu Hindi Gujarati Arabic
Videogames Main Menu Hobbies Menu The Assassin’s Creed series is my favourite videogame series to date. It is developed by Ubisoft Montreal and Published by Ubisoft. AC is a sandbox style action-adventure- stealth game. The Series has seven installments with four main Assassins, i.e., Altair, Ezio, Edward, and Connor. AC is available on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Windows, and Mac OS X.Assassin’s Creed AC With each new numbered installment we, as the gamers, are presented with a new main assassin and location during their corresponding time frame in history. In the 21 st Century, people are re-living the events of their ancestors (an assassin) through a machine called the “animus”. The main objective of the Assassin Order is to eliminate the main antagonists, the Knights Templar who plan to take over and corrupt the world.
