Talk about excellence.
A 10-year-old California native has become one of the youngest people to ever graduate high school. Tanishq Abraham received his diploma on Sunday in a private ceremony at the Sacramento California Auto Museum.
The home-schooled genius achieved a 4.0 GPA, while successfully meeting the state’s requirements to graduate.
“It wasn’t, like, easy, but it was not that hard either,” says Tanishq. “The way my brain works is that when you give me something, information about that topic comes into my mind. I don’t know what it is but that’s how it is for me.”
Tanishq’s mother, Taji Abraham, said she “had a hunch he was a little gifted.”
“Once we got a formal IQ test, that’s when we figured it out,” she added.
And get this — Tanishq is already taking college courses.
“My ultimate goal would be science, like scientist or doctor, but I also want to be president, too,” says Abraham.
President Barack Obama sent Tanishq a letter congratulating him on his achievement. And we’re sending our best wishes as well.
