12-Year-Old Indian American Got Into 2 Reputed Colleges And Plans To Become A Doctor By 18

You know what I did when I was 12 years old? Watch cartoons and be fascinated by the fact that Tom couldn’t chase Jerry. Kids these days are so intelligent and have so many things to do.

A 12-year-old Indian-American kid named Tanishq Abraham has received scholarships from different international colleges and he plans to become a doctor by the time he is 18 years old.

That’s right, 18!

He was accepted by UC Davis college and offered a scholarship in UC Santa Cruz. He still hasn’t decided which college he will study in.


He started community college when he was just 7 years old and he has received associate’s degree from American River College in different subjects such as math, science, physical science, and foreign language studies.

Some college students were obviously ‘intimidated’ when they saw a kid attending the college. While some on the other hand, were excited to study with a kid.


Not only the students, even the professor didn’t want him to attend the class. But, one of them agreed on one condition – if his mother accompanied him to the class.

His mother is a veterinary doctor.

A Biology professor said that the kid never got tired of asking questions and was always curious to learn new things.

The kid originates from Kerala and moved with his family to the USA. He also likes playing video games.


Way to go, Tanishq. 🙂
