FORT WAYNE, Ind.
This week on Start Something Big, meet Rovenio. The active 8-year-old loves anything that has to do with math, science, and cars.
“Lamborghinis, and Corvettes and Chevy Camaros.”
And he likes the outdoors.
“Basketball, volleyball and soccer.”
Rovenio says staying inside is good too. He likes to help his mom cook and is hoping for a big brother who does too.
“Any kind of chicken. Just not with ketchup though.”
He also likes movies and watching tv, and playing games with his sister.
And what interests Rovenio the most right now? His rock collection.
“Rocks, rocks, rocks. There are two that are very special to me. There's one that has crystals, looks like it's growing on them. The other one look has a pile of minerals and rocks all piled together.”
We asked Rovenio what he would do if he won a million dollars...
“I'd buy a whole bunch of toy cars.”
