“This Isn’t Much of a Big Thing For Me”: 11-Year-Old Youngest to Graduate College.

“Earlier this year, 11-year-old Tanishq Abraham became the youngest person ever to graduate from American River College in Sacramento, California in the school’s 60-year history.

“The assumption is that he’s the all-time youngest,” American River College spokesman Scott Crow. “But we don’t have all the archives to completely confirm. He was definitely the youngest this year.”


This is a moment that would make anyone proud, but Abraham claims it wasn’t ”much of a big thing for me.”

Tanishq became a member of MENSA at the tender age of four. He graduated from high school at 10, after successfully completing California’s early-exit high school exam. For this achievement, he received congratulations from President Obama.” said


“His mother, Taji Abraham, said he has always been ahead of the class.

“Even in kindergarten he was pretty ahead, a few years ahead — and then it just went from there,”

So, how did this translate to the college environment? Abraham said that some of the students were intimidated in the beginning, but that others were happy to have someone so young in the class.


In the end, he earned enough credits for three associates degrees, in math and physical science, general science, and language studies.” said

What’s in store for this talented child?  ”I want to become a doctor, but I also want to become a medical researcher, and also the president of the United States.”
