If parents believe their son or daughter is more gifted than other children, they should have him or her take an IQ test for kids. The results of this assessment may reveal that a child has what it takes to become the next Tanishq Abraham.
At just 9 years old, Tanishq is enrolled at American River College, and was recently inducted into the international honor society Phi Theta Kappa, according to The Sacramento Bee. Gaining entry into Phi Theta Kappa was not much of a challenge for Tanishq, who has a 4.0 GPA and 30 college credits under his belt.
Despite his young age, Tanishq has big plans for the future. After he earns an associate degree, he plans to enroll in a university so he can earn a bachelor's degree. Beyond academia, Tanishq would like to become a scientist, doctor and a U.S. president. Although some may believe Tanishq's life is dedicated to the constant acquisition of new knowledge, he does not see it that way.
"People always think I'm not enjoying my childhood and that I should stop college classes and enjoy childhood," Tanishq told ABC News10. "But I am actually enjoying childhood."
