9 year old California student working on college degree
The difference: He's only 9 years old.
Tanishq is one of the few genius kids to earn a College degree at a very early age.
Tanishq is a student at American River College in Sacramento, Calif., where he studies subjects from paleontology to astronomy.
Inducted into the genius society MENSA at age 4, his parents say others often question if they're pushing him too hard.
"He's pushing us," his father Bijou, jokes to Fox40.
Tanishq, who can even be found giving guest lectures, says he isn't fazed by being around those older than him.
"I don't mind interacting with other college students," he says. "I like it."
