Ten-year-old Tanishq Abraham, who at the age of 4 was one of the youngest Americans accepted into the high-IQ society Mensa, has graduated from high school with a 4.0 GPA.
Abraham told local news station KXTV that while the work wasn't hard, it wasn't easy either. "The way my brain works is that when you give me something, information about that topic comes into my mind," he said. "I don't know what it is, but that's how it is for me."
