Most 12 years old children are playing video games, hanging out with their friends and family in the park, or doing their homework for their seventh-grade classes. But I stumbled upon an incredible boy who also does the first two activities that we mentioned, but, instead of doing his seventh-grade homework, he is studying for his advanced calculus subject. Caleb Anderson, a 12-year-old genius from Marietta, Georgia is now embarking on a new journey as a sophomore in college. He is currently taking up aerospace engineering at Chattahoochee Technical College.
According to his parents, at a very early age, nine months, to be exact, Caleb is already showing an amazing ability by being able to sign over 250 words. And when he was 11 months, he could already read and talk. These extraordinary abilities led to the realization of his parents that Caleb is not just like any ordinary child. At the age of three, he is already qualified to join MENSA, which is the largest and oldest high IQ society in the world. However, he waited until he was five years old before he joined the exclusive organization. Caleb can speak five different languages including sign language, due to his exceptional intelligence, it is not surprising that he always excelled at school and found the subjects that we typically struggle at when we are his age, so easy.
“‘It’s really not helping me grow in my learning, and I think I’m ready for college,’” these are the exact words that Caleb’s mother remembers hearing from her bright child that they fully supported.
Now, he is currently enrolled as a sophomore at a Technical College which his father accompanied him due to his young age. Once he graduates, Caleb hopes that he can continue studying at Georgia Tech and MIT, which we know he can easily achieve being the genius he is.
