A 12-year-old from Alpharetta, Georgia...

Neha Embar

Are you the Jeopardy! champion of your household?
I guess you could say I'm the Jeopardy! champ in my household.

What do you want to say to Alex Trebek?
I want to say that my Academic Bowl team won first place in state.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
When I grow up, I want to be a pediatrician.

...

How does it feel to be a Jeopardy! champion?
Um, it almost feels surreal, like I didn't expect this to happen. I... really don't even... It's not registering, for now, at least.

Did you enjoy getting to know the other Kids Week contestants?
Yeah, I've met a lot of new friends, and I'm glad they're going to keep in contact.

Was there a category that was easy for you?
Well, the Final Jeopardy!, WORLD GEOGRAPHY--I'm pretty good at geography, so I felt that was a home run for me.

Is there anyone you would like to thank for helping you become a Jeopardy! champion?
I just want to say hi to Mr. Swanson and the Academic Bowl team, and thank you for getting me here.

"No kidding--she wants to be a pediatrician when she grows up. From Alpharetta, Georgia, say hi to..."
