From time to time, we hear about exceptionally talented people who blow our minds. Caleb Anderson is making headlines as he proves to be talented like no other, and what’s even special about him is that he is only 12!
The list of Caleb’s brilliant skills and talents goes on and on, and you should be ready to believe that such talent exists in the world.
When he was just 9 months, he already knew sign language. By the time he was a cute baby of just one, he could already read! And the next talent is one that some adults can’t do even now! Caleb could do fractions when he was only two! How ingenious is this kid!
Currently, he is studying in his second year at Chattahoochee Technical College in Georgia, the US. His aim is to work for Elon Musk, the owner of the infamous Tesla. According to what Caleb recently told USA Today, he wishes to get an internship under Musk: “When I was like one, I always wanted to go to space. I figured that aerospace engineering would be the best path.”
However much the world sees him as an incredibly talented genius, Caleb does not think of him that way. This is what he said about it to CBS: “I’m not really smart. I just grasp information quickly. So, if I learn quicker, then I get ahead faster.”
Sadly, just like the saying “stones and sticks are thrown only at fruit-bearing trees”’ goes, Caleb was not treated well during middle school.
“The kids there, they kind of looked down on me, they treated me like I was an anomaly,” he said. “And I kind of am.”
However, despite all this, Caleb is excited about college, and is working his way up towards his aim.
