Last year Dr. Sanjay Gupta of CNN wanted to talk to me so much that he flew me to New York and got me a room at the fanciest hotel in the city, but ironically at my school, most kids choose not to talk to me at all. Why is that?

Recently I surveyed some of my close friends and discovered that most people aren’t sure how to talk freely to me, and I greatly decided to use their questions as the basis for this piece.
