Brit-Indian whizkid harbours NASA space man dreamsJune 11th, 2010 - 2:59 pm ICT by ANI
London, June 11 (ANI): Arjun Rajyagor, who has been crowned as the first ever Junior Apprentice champ, wants to get a job working with spacemen at NASA.
The 17-year-old maths whizz, who won the title in the final on BBC1, already has a conditional offer to study engineering science at Oxford.
However, he said that he would first use his 25,000 pounds prize money to start a firm of electrical engineers.
“I aspire to trade one day with the likes of NASA and Apple,” the Sun quoted him as saying.
The Essex lad, who runs a computer repairs business from his bedroom, wasn’t convinced he’d won the title and said: “When I found out, I was physically taken aback.”
But, business supremo Alan Sugar, is convinced of Arjun’s business acumen.
“Arjun has that natural business flair combined with intelligence that some people are born with. You can’t learn it,” he said.
Arjun pipped his close pal, farm-hand Tim Ankers to the post.
The lads were the last two surviving - and Lord Sugar chose Arjun as winner. (ANI)
