On June 8, Tanishq Abraham became one of the youngest people ever to graduate high school — and he is only 10. Now, the recent graduate has big plans for his education, such as being president and curing cancer. Sweet!
Tanishq Abraham, 10, graduated from his high school on Sunday, June 8, with a 4.0 GPA. The little boy has previously written blogs for NASA, and even started taking college courses when he was just 7 years old.
California Boy Graduates High School At 10
This is so cool.
Sunday, June 8, was a very exciting day for one 10-year-old boy in particular. While other children his age are just wrapping up 5th grade for the summer, Tanishq received his high school diploma during a private ceremony, according to the Daily Mail.
Even though we’re sure his parents were extremely proud of their son, it probably wasn’t much of a surprise to them. After all, Tanishq joined Mensa — a group of people whose IQ is in the top 2% — when he was just 4 years old. That’s right: 4 years old!
In the past, Tanishq, who is from Sacramento, has written exciting astronomy blogs for NASA. He’s definitely a child prodigy!
Just three years before officially receiving his high school diploma, Tanishq started taking college courses. He plans on enrolling into medical school at the University of Southern California, and hopes that one day he will be able to cure cancer.
As if graduating high school at 10 was not cool enough, Tanishq also received a personal letter from the White House congratulating him on his accomplishment. The first of many, we’re sure!
