They say ‘Wisdom Comes with Age,’ but the old proverb does not fit anymore, at least in the case of William Maillis. At 11, Willam holds a college degree and aims to prove the existence of God through science.
Interestingly, 11 year old William can't even vote or drive, but has already embarked on his aspiring journey to be an astrophysicist.
Recently, William stunned everyone when he moved ahead towards a stage to receive his Associate in Arts degree from St. Petersburg College in Florida.
Talking to the media, the 11 year old wonder kid said, “Everybody has gifts from God. I was gifted with knowledge and science and history.”
"I am totally fascinated by William and the work that he has done," Dr. Tonjua Williams, President of St. Petersburg College, told the media and added that, "He's extremely brilliant, very open and collaborative."
It may be mentioned that, he started college in the year 2016 after graduating from high school at an unbelievable age of 9. Described by his parents as always being on the "fast track," by the age of two William was solving simple math until he reached 4, he took on algebra, still a nightmare for many adults.
William further plans to continue with his education and is all set for attending classes from August at the University of South Florida.
William aspires to be an astrophysicist and wants to prove to the world that God does exist through science.
Interestingly, the Wonder-Kid wants to complete his doctorate by the time reaches an age of 18 years. Where most of us are busy preparing for college, there are things unknown stored within the ingenious kid that would unfold with time.
