Move Over Doogie Howser, James Madison Is New Wiz Kid On The Block

picture source: newsone.com
I love coming across new stories like this. James Martin a young brother who just gave his family some extreme bragging points -- he just graduated college with a bachelor's degree in molecular biology from Florida Atlantic University, his GPA is an impressive 3.9, and oh yeah to  top it all off, he's only 17 years old. 

[While Martin is clearly a super-talented young man, his mother, who home-schooled him as a child, admits that her son was not always so studious. “His early years, he tended to be a little lazy,” said Joan Martin. “He daydreamed a lot and then, about 12 or 13, he started getting really serious.”
Martin was so serious that his improved habits landed him on FAU’s campus at 14-years-old. It was a successful journey that didn’t go without its challenging moments, however. “It’s been some nights, man,” he said. “It’s been some nights where I’m just like, ‘Ugh!’”
While Martin is not sure of what his next steps will be, he does eventually want to pursue higher education.
“In a couple years, hopefully, I’ll be on my way to getting a PhD, and so that would be a tremendous blessing,” he said. “In another eight years, I’ll be a professor somewhere.”] source: newsone.com
