This was a weekend of firsts for Govil Gupta, a 16-year-old entrepreneur and publisher from Irvine. ?It?s been amazing,? said Govil, smiling as he strolled down the red carpet Saturday at Nestlé headquarters in Glendale. ?From the limo ride to the food to the tux ? this is the first time wearing a tux.? His father chased after him with a camcorder, and a relative hoisted a large sign picturing Govil in a blue shirt, business tie and suit jacket slung over his shoulder. The founder of Wonder Writers, a portal for students to submit and share their writing, Govil was one of 24 students handpicked by Nestlé as one of its Very Best In Youth.
