Kadakia is currently 20 years old and will be graduating from Drexel University
in 2008. The following summer, he will be attending Drexel University College
of Medicine in order to fulfill his aspiration of becoming a practicing
physician. In his free time, Sameep enjoys singing, playing basketball, and
spending time with family and friends. He currently lives in Pennsylvania with
his parents and younger sister. Sameep believes that children’s literature is
very important because it instills morals and values in children at early ages.
Children should realize that it is their individual uniqueness that makes each
of them beautiful. Sameep believes that conveying this message through Colors of the Jungle will assist children
in developing a sense of self-esteem, confidence, and security.
