angry asian speller

Kunal Sah, a 13-year-old eighth-grader in Green River, Utah, is an angry speller: He knows how to spell a-n-g-r-y. Ah, a kid after my own heart. His family was torn apart last year when his parents were sent back to India last year after being denied political asylum. He apparently cried every day after his parents left, but when spelling bee season started Kunal got angry, spelling words, kicking ass... and winning. He's one of three students from Utah who will be going to Washington at the end of this month for the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
