A 12-year-old California student who already has three community college degrees said he plans to attend college in the fall to study biomedical engineering. The boy aims to become a doctor and medical researcher by age 18.
Tanishq Abraham of Sacramento has been accepted to University of California at Davis and received a regents scholarship to University of California at Santa Cruz, but he has yet to decide which university he’ll attend, reported Sacramento television station CBS 13.
Tanishq started community college at age 7, and last year he received associate’s degrees from American River College, a community college in Sacramento, in general science; math and physical science; and foreign language studies.
At first, professors at the college didn’t want Tanishq in their classes because of his age. But finally a professor agreed to let him attend if his mother, a doctor of veterinary medicine, also took the class.
