A 13-yer-old boy just achieved a little too early one of his life goals after he became a college graduate.
Jack Rico graduated from Fullerton College in California in late last month, recognizing him as the youngest student to graduate in the school.
Rico started his tertiary education when he was 11. This year, he completed his associate degrees in history, human expression, social behavior, and social science with a 4.0 GPA.
The young graduate said he just loved learning new stuff.
However, he shared he does not have any secrets but only good time management and listening to your instructors.
Having homeschooled before college, Rico’s first official graduation was in Fullerton . But due to the ongoing social distancing restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, he did not experience an in-person graduation ceremony.
But his family and his friends, who have been ever supportive to his endeavors, plans to hold a drive-by graduation parade.
Rico will be pursuing further studies in History in University of Nevada in Las Vegas in a full scholarship.
While Rico is obviously ahead a couple of steps from his age group, he said he is still a kid. “I’m still trying to explore my interests and learn what I want to do in life,” he said.
