A brilliant 15-year-old boy, Nehemiah Juniel has set an outstanding academic record after becoming the youngest ever person to graduate from the Sam Houston State University (SHSU), Texas, United States. Nehemiah who is set to receive his Bachelor’s degree in August 2022 has always been highly interested in learning. At age 5, he started solving pre-algebra and received his Associate of Science degree at age 13.
Now at 15 years, he will graduate from Sam Houston State University, Texas, United States with a bachelor’s degree in health sciences and become the youngest student to ever graduate from the university.
“Words can’t express how proud we are of him,” his father — Raphael Junie — said, according to the outlet.
Speaking about Nehemiah Juniel’s outstanding academic record, Corie Juniel, his mother narrated that he had started reading and writing at two.
“Nehemiah was reading and writing at two. So, we always knew this kid was special,” his mother said. She believes Sam Houston State University (SHSU) was a great fit because the extra services provided made his transition into university life easier than expected. Nehemiah’s academic success has come with challenges. He credits professors and teaching assistants for keeping him encouraged while attending SMSU. As Juniel looks ahead, he hopes to become a cardiologist, and he plans to begin studying for the MCAT.
“Around the age of 8 years old, I decided I wanted to become a surgeon of some sort,” Nehemiah said, according to Click2Houston.
“As I grew, I continued to change and specify what kind of career I wanted to pursue. This culminated in my decision to study cardiology.”
