Sho Yano, 21, began college at age 9!!
Three years later he went to medical school.
He is now about the become the youngest student to ever be awarded an M.D. by the University of Chicago.
Sho has been a prodigy basically his entire life. He started reading at 2, writing at 3 and composing music at 5.
This week, he graduates from the Pritzker School of Medicine. Oh, and did we also mention he also got a Ph.D. from that same school in molecular genetics and cell biology.
Sho is a bit of a super human, because he's not only an accomplished pianist, he's also a black belt in tae kwon do.
As a child, after being turned away from several schools because of his age, the University of Chicago admitted him. A professor on the board of admissions said:
"I remember interviewing him… this nice, polite, 11-year-old boy, dressed in a little suit. He was never going to be among typical 11-year-olds, where his mother would drive him to Little League. He was going to be a doctor."
That professor was certainly right. This kid must have some seriously happy parents!
And Sho… we'll give you 20 years to cure cancer. Get on it!
