14 year old Carson Huey-You made his African-American mother bust into tears of joy as he graduated from a Texas college as the youngest graduate ever.
His mom who couldn’t hide her joy was caught crying when her son was pronounced the youngest person ever to graduate from Texas Christian University. Carson Huey-You was among more than 2,000 students who got a degree at the Fort Worth school, where he also minored in Chinese and Math.
His extraordinary achievements have put him in the history books, but the humble teen describes himself as ‘normal dude.‘ Carson doesn’t see himself as different from his peers and shies away when others call him a ‘genius’ or a ‘celebrity’. But the clever boy already has his eyes set on getting graduate and doctorate degrees in quantum mechanics.
‘I’m a normal dude,’ he told the Star-telegram. ‘It is just something I have learned to deal with because, to me I am not a genius. I am a normal 14-year-old person doing college-level stuff.’
Carson entered Texas Christian University at just 11 years old. He also graduated as the co-valedictorian at his high school.
But it wasn’t all smooth sailing and he admits he was intimidated by his new surroundings when he first got to college.
Carson says his college classes were a lot more difficult than he anticipated, especially the American environmental history, general chemistry II and classical mechanics classes.
‘It was scary at first because my high school was only one building versus a massive campus with tons of people,’ Carson told the paper.
‘After that, I really did get used to it because TCU was so accommodating and a positive influence really.
We celebrated Carson for this great achievement, and we wish him more of such in future. To our readers believe in yourself like Carson and you will attain unimaginable milestones.
