An 11-year-old from Newark, Delaware...

Aki Terasaki

Hi, I'm Aki, and you're watching me on for Jeopardy!'s Back to School Week.

How long have you been watching Jeopardy!?
When I was four I went to the States, and that's when I think I started watching it.

How did you prepare for being a contestant?
I read my almanac and my encyclopedia from front cover to back.

What is your favorite category?
Definitely GREEK MYTHOLOGY. My favorite.

Who's your favorite character in mythology?
I'd have to say Perseus, the guy who cut off the head of Medusa.

Do you know what you want to be when you grow up?
I'd like to be an author, but I wouldn't take a millionaire for no.

Be sure to tune in and root for Aki!
