The passion to learn can lead to wonders regardless of age. An Indo-American home-schooled boy has stunned everyone by graduating from a US college at the age of 11 with three associate degrees in mathematics, science and foreign language studies.

Tanishq Abraham, a native of Sacramento, California, graduated from American River College in Sacramento (ARC), California, alongside 1,800 students.

Abraham is the youngest person to graduate from American River College this year. Last year, he became one of the youngest ever in the US to graduate high school.

Home-schooled since the age of 7, Abraham cleared a state exam in March 2014 with certification that he had met the appropriate academic standards to receive his high school diploma. His achievement in 2014 had grabbed everyone’s attention including President Barack Obama, who had sent him a congratulatory note.

Abraham joined MENSA, the prominent high IQ society, when he was only four-year-old.

While speaking to media, Abraham told that the milestone of graduating from college was not "much of a big thing for me."
