US NORMALS ARE JUST TRYING TO GET BY WHILE A CHILD PRODIGY CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS
People often head to college in their late teen years and early twenties. These are the ‘normals’ everyday kind of people. Like you and me. But there are people who are outliers and defy the mainstream ways. A person who is pretty much brilliant is called a child prodigy, or an outlier for intelligence. And they often head to school when they are young. Before you’ve blinked your eyes and drank your coffee. Here are some of the most brilliant kids and what they have done to propel them into the academic world some of us know nothing about. They may just be living in your neighborhood.
AN OUTLIER HEADING TO SCHOOL BEFORE PUBERTY
Michael Kearny, who is an adult now, completed a degree in History and Anthropology at the age of 10. He hadn’t hit puberty and he had a College degree! Another outlier, Jeremy Shuler, recently started his freshman year studying Engineering at Cornell. This child prodigy had the ability to read in English and Korean before the age of two. He may be living in your neighborhood, have you looked around?
YOUNG DOCTOR AT 21? LIVING IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD?
Want to find a super young doctor in your neighborhood? Then visit Sho Yano, who earned his MD at the University of Chicago at the age of 21. Alia Sabur was a teaching professor in South Korea at 19 years of age. Most kids just started drinking at that age. But Alia probably has earned her tenure by now. Tanishq Abraham has three degrees. He’s 12 years old. Now he’s doing a bio-engineering degree at US Davis.
FAMOUS PEOPLE HAVE SMART KIDS TOO YOU KNOW
Mia Farrow’s son is also brilliant. Ronan Farrow went to Bard College at age 11 and then to Yale at the age of 16. Handsome, Kind and Smart. Who knew he too was an outlier? Another child prodigy, Erik Demaine, went to Dalhousie at the age of 12. He had no formal education training. Now he’s an MIT professor. And Gregory Smith, who has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize because of his children rights pursuits, went to college to study everything at the age of 10 years old.
