California 11-year-old graduates college with three degrees


SACRAMENTO, May 22 (UPI) -- An 11-year-old California boy graduated community college with three associate degrees only one year after he graduated from high school.

Tanishq Abraham, 11, of Sacramento, made national headlines and received a congratulatory letter from President Barack Obama when he graduated high school last year and walked across the stage Wednesday at American River College in Sacramento to accept associate degrees in math, science and foreign language studies.

"I like to learn," Abraham, who graduated with a 4.0 GPA, told KTXL-TV. "So I just followed my passion of learning, and that's how I ended up here."

The graduate posted on Twitter Wednesday that the degrees were only the first part of his larger goals.


"3 Associate college degrees -Awesome feeling- completed my first few baby steps to my BIG goal- @NobelPrize med doctor/researcher & @POTUS," he tweeted, hinting at his goals of winning a Nobel Prize and becoming president of the United States.

Abraham said the next step in his plan is pursuing a bachelor's degree.
