SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A 10-year-old Northern California boy is celebrating a milestone most people don't reach until they are in their late teens.

Tanishq Abraham has become one of the youngest people to graduate from high school.

The Sacramento boy received his diploma at a private ceremony in front of family and friends on Sunday.

Tanishq was home-schooled and graduated with a 4.0 GPA. He tells KXTV in Sacramento the work wasn't easy, but not that hard either.

His mom, Taji, says she suspected her son was gifted, but didn't know until the results of an IQ test.

Tanishq is taking college courses and says he wants to be a scientist, but also president.
