An 11-year-old Sacramento boy is now a college graduate. In fact, he has earned three degrees.

Tanishq Abraham graduated from American River College in Sacramento on Wednesday night with associate's degrees in math and physical sciences, general science and foreign language studies.

“I like to learn,” he told KTLA sister station KTXL following the graduation ceremony. “So I just followed my passion of learning, and that’s how I ended up here.”

His proud mother, Taji Abraham, said her son had a lot of support.

“We did it as a family, as teamwork,” she said. “I was just cheering. I was just crying there when I saw Tanishq walk down the stage.”

Tahishq still has a few courses to take at the community college.

Then he would like to go to Stanford University, and ultimately become a doctor, a medical researcher and president of the United States.
