2016 Scripps National Spelling Bee!!!

Good morning everyone!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful wrap-up to the school year and a fantastic beginning of summer!

For me personally, I have spent this past week coping with my (bee)pression following the 2016 Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington D.C. This year the bee itself was nothing short of unforgettable, stunning, and historic — there were amazing words that were asked and even more amazing spellers on stage who blew me away completely. My heartiest congratulations to our new co-champs Jairam Hathwar and Nihar Janga and to each and every other speller because we all know that you ALL ARE CHAMPIONS!!! Also a very special shoutout to those spellers and their families whom I got to speak with and who shared that they have been watching the videos on this blog in preparation for the bee — thank you so much Sreeniketh, Rutvik, Sylvie, Mitchell, and the rest of you for your support and on a job well done! I don’t think I will ever witness such a spectacular spelling bee in my life ever again🙂

However, the best part of Bee Week 2016 for me, and for everyone else I’m sure, was the plethora of memories and treasured moments that will stay with us forever. From the National Zoo to the Kindle Presentation to the DC trip to the Awards Banquet to the Farewell Party, each and every moment was filled with smiles and laughter and memories that will last us all a lifetime. So I please ask all of you to revel in these life-long friendships that you have made and to keep in touch with everyone — it is these moments that fill our hearts and stay with us forever and make Bee Week the best week in the entire year🙂

Hope to see you soon with some new videos and interesting words!

With all my love,

Stuti

 

SUMMER 2016 UPDATE

Hello friends!!! It’s been a very long time! I was extremely busy the past couple of months with the end of my high school journey, but I am very happy to announce that I graduated from Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy as class valedictorian this past Saturday and am officially Princeton University Class of 2020! Thank you all so much for the wonderful wishes and for all the support and encouragement throughout my journey.

Now that I’m college bound, I’m not 100% sure how the video-making process will work from my dorm room next school year, but I am definitely going to continue this blog by actively updating posts with interesting words that I found when I read Merriam Webster’s Third New International Dictionary in 2011-2012! I will strive for the video format still, but will let you all know which way will be most conducive when I find out soon. So please be on the lookout for captivating and mind-boggling and linguistic words!

I’m also very happy to share that I’ll be at the 2016 Scripps National Spelling Bee tomorrow in Washington D.C. because my little sister Dhyana is participating this year! I’d love to meet any of you if you are there or if you are participating!! Looking forward to an AMAZING Bee Week next week!

THANK YOU EVERYONE!!

Much love and regards,

Stuti
