LOS ANGLES: An 11-year-old Indian-American boy has surprised all after he got graduation degrees from a US college alongside 1,800 students on Wednesday.
Home-schooled since the age of 7, Tanishq Abraham became the youngest student by graduating from American River College in Sacramento (ARC), California in 2015 with three degrees in Maths, Science and Foreign Languages Studies.
“Last year, Abraham became one of the youngest in the US after he completed high school exam,” said College spokesperson Scott Crow.
Genius Abraham was only four-years-old when he passed a state exam in March 2014. Abraham expressed his feelings on Twitter, saying “Awesome feeling.”
