When you hear the name “Karn Sharma,” you may think of that kid that always seems to have exactly $12; you might remember the Drama Club superstar. You may also recall a guy with great taste in music. In reality, Sharma is all of these things and so much more.
When did you move to Hudson?
During the summer of 2014, before this school year. I used to go to Hanover Middle School [Hanover, Penn.] It was okay, I guess. Hudson is definitely better. I really like the people. It’s a relatively nice place to live.
Was the move hard or easy?
It was hard because I had a lot of friends that I had to leave, but I’d rather be in Hudson.
What do you usually do for the Drama Club?
I’m on running crew mostly. Hopefully I’ll be a stage manager someday. I just like meeting new people and making friends.
Were you in drama at your old school?
I was not in any clubs because my school never offered any. I guess I never thought about clubs. If they had drama, I probably would have joined it.
What do you do when you’re not at Drama Club?
I stay at home and work with my computer and mess around with videos. I usually hibernate on the weekends.
What type of music do you listen to?
Rock and roll. My favorites are Journey, Foreigner, AC/DC, Foo Fighters and punk rock.
If you were a scented marker, what would you smell like?
Cherry blossoms. I just really like cherries.
Can you fit your whole fist in your mouth?
Can you try?
Do you have any siblings?

I have an older sister named Anu. She’s a senior. That’s pretty much it.
If you could only have five possessions, what would they be?
Anything? My phone, my computer, my tablet, my life, and…my own mansion.
If you could participate in an Olympic sport, which sport would it be?
Snowboarding. I guess I just like the activity. And I like snow and winter because everyone gets a cold and people stay away from me.
What else do you do in the winter?
I stay home and stay inside or go outside and build a snowman and throw snowballs at people’s cars.
Do you have any favorite Nickelback songs?
(Becomes very serious) I hate Nickelback.
What is in your ideal burrito?
I’m a vegetarian. I don’t eat burritos.
Why are you a vegetarian?
I was born a vegetarian. I’m Hindu; it’s against my religion to eat meat.
How much money do you have with you right now, and how do you plan to spend it?
I have $12. I’m just keeping it in my wallet. I’m not gonna use it. I’ve already donated about $24 in total for Mrs. Amy Foulkes to dye her hair green and for cast gifts [for Drama Club].
Do you have anything else to add?
That’s pretty much it. Can I go home now?
