8 Year old boy graduate from High School



A Belgian boy has graduated from high school at the age of 8 after completing six years of study in about 18 months.
And Laurent Simons’ next step is university — after a two-month holiday.
The brainy Belgian has an IQ of 145, according to his parents, and collected his high school diploma alongside 18-year-olds.
Laurent told Belgium’s RTBF radio that his favourite subject was maths.
He has considered pursuing a career as a surgeon, astronaut, or working with computers — but his parents are not worried either way, the BBC reported.
“If he decided tomorrow to become a carpenter, that would not be a problem for us, as long as he is happy,” his father said.
If Laurent does indeed take up work with computers, he will not be the first young prodigy to employ his talents in the field.
Canadian teen Tanmay Bakshi landed a job at IBM working on artificial intelligence at age 13.
As of last year, he also commanded more than 20,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel featuring lessons on how to code.
Australian 11-year-old artist Aelita Andre also enjoyed early success, with her paintings fetching up to $50,000 and earning comparisons with works by Jackson Pollock.
Earlier this year, Melbourne violinist Christian Li, 10, became the youngest winner of one of the world’s most prestigious music competitions, the Yehudi Menuhin International.
