Let’s just put it out there. Carson Huey-You is a genius. The TWELVE-year-old is finishing his sophomore year at Texas Christian University, and so far, it’s been pretty easy.
“For now, I think that all my classes have been pretty simple,” Carson admitted to TCU360. “Right now I am in Electromagnetism and Optics, but later on I will have to do quantum physics and that may be challenging in the future.”
In 2013, Carson became the youngest person to ever be admitted to TCU. But from the looks of his resume, the choice was easy. Carson scored 1770 on his SATs, speaks Mandarin Chinese, was the co-valedictorian of his high school class, and plays classical piano.
Despite his immense talents, Carson’s parents say they didn’t push him to enroll in college so soon. They describe him as an old soul who’s “wise beyond his years,” and so far things are going well. Although Carson admitted TCU360 this year it’s been a “challenge to be 12 and go to college,” he said the university has “taught me how to be a much better student and at being more organized. It has also taught me to just have a schedule.”
While Carson hopes to get his PhD by the time he’s 20, he does more than just study all the time. When he isn’t working on complicated math problems or hanging in the lab, Carson loves watching football, going to games, and playing Minecraft.
