SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A 10-year-old Northern California boy is celebrating a milestone most people don't reach until they are in their late teens.
Tanishq Abraham has become one of the youngest people to graduate from high school. The Sacramento boy received his diploma at a private ceremony in front of family and friends on Sunday, and even got a congratulatory letter from the White House, KXTV in Sacramento reported.
Tanishq was home-schooled and graduated with a 4.0 GPA. He told KXTV the work wasn't easy, but not that hard either.
"The way my brain works is that when you give me something, information about that topic comes into my mind," he said. "I don't know what it is, but that's how it is for me."
His mom, Taji, said she suspected her son was gifted, but didn't know until the results of an IQ test. Tanishq joined Mensa, a group for people whose IQ is in the top 2 percent of the population, at the age of 4.
So what's next for him?
Tanishq is taking college courses and says he wants to be a scientist, but also president. He has his sights set on medical school at the University of California, Davis, and finding a cure for cancer.
