Name: Arjun Ram

Age: 12

Hometown: Hamilton, Ont.

Arjun, also known as “MC RJ,” is poised to be the next rap superstar to come straight outta Ontario. When he’s not making magic on the mic, he’s doing actual magic tricks — often able to replicate a trick after seeing it on YouTube.

Always up for a challenge, Arjun tackles everything he does with laser-focused precision, whether it's a complex math problem, public speaking, debating or hip hop. He’s ready to drop the mic on the competition on Canada’s Smartest Person Junior.
