Ever since he was a child, Rohith was always fascinated by geography and learning about other cultures. He would sit for hours and read maps and atlases, and even draw his own. While he looked at and read these maps, he became naturally curious as to what life was like around the world. His passion for geography as a child left him quite gifted with the subject and he consistently participated in the National Geographic Bee contest in elementary and middle schools. He was able to travel to many different places around the world including plenty of states within the USA, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Germany, the Netherlands, the Bahamas, Canada, Austria, Spain, and Poland.
