someone should do a documentary on them, follow them around for a few years...that would be so interesting.



and regarding what other people were saying in here about the lack of responses, i don't know what they were expecting people to say...and why they just didn't choose to say it themselves.....

these threads are pretty much like threads where they post articles about a child being raped or murdered...not much you can say except say how sickening and disgusting it is.......in this thread, you can only way how wonderful and great it is.....basically everyone will be lining up to say the same thing

New Kid on the Block Carson Huey-You

Carson Huey-You isn’t your average 11 year old. While most 11 year olds are currently adjusting to middle school, Carson is about to start his freshman year at Texas Christian University and is studying to be a quantum physicist.

Yes, you read it correctly. An 11 year old is studying to be a quantum physicist.

To accomplish such a feat, Carson scored a 1770 on the SAT, and he was co-valedictorian of his senior class.

From tcu360:

Dean of Admission Ray Brown said he cannot recall ever having an applicant so young.

Carson couldn’t even apply online because the software is not set to accept someone born in 2002, Brown said.

During his admission interview, Carson’s many talents were impressive. Brown said Carson spoke Mandarin Chinese, and played piano in the Admissions Center.

Prior to Carson, Brown said the youngest student to enroll at the university during his tenure was Sam Hong, who graduated in 2011 at age 17.

Carson’s parents expect him to graduate in four to five years, when he is 15 or 16.

Brown said he is pleased to have Carson at the university.

“[Carson] is at a place that will genuinely care about him as a person,” Brown said.

Carson showed signs of genius early on. Carson’s mother, Claretta Huey-You, told TCU that she knew her son was gifted from the start, saying, “he could add, subtract, multiply and divide by age three. He was working at an eighth grade level by the age of five.” Carson’s father, Andre Huey-You, a former pilot, said he is “not pushing [Carson], but trying to hold on to his son, so he doesn’t get too far beyond him.”

Carson isn’t the only achiever in the family. His brother, Cannan, 7, is studying at the eighth grade level. His parents expect him to graduate from high school by age 13.

Carson's mother said the first sign that Carson might be gifted came when he was three months old.

She said she brought him with her to an eye appointment and the doctor was impressed with Carson’s ability to focus.

In fact, Carson was reading chapter books at the age of two, before being potty-trained. He started a Kumon math and reading learning program before he was three.

His mother said he could add, subtract, multiply and divide by age three. He was working at an eighth grade level by the age of five.

It was at this time Carson’s mother and father began searching for a school for Carson.

His young age and advanced intellect made finding a school for Carson challenging, she said. He was rejected several times before enrolling at Accommodated Learning Academy in Grapevine, Texas.

ALA principal and teacher Melissa McGowan said the school caters to all students no matter what learning style they prefer. The school has 16 teachers and 55 students, and 30 to 40 percent of the students end up graduating early, McGowan said.

Carson graduated from ALA with a 4.0 GPA. He said his cumulative SAT score was 1770 (critical reading: 580, math: 620, writing: 570).

When asked about Carson in the classroom, McGowan said, “[Carson] was empathetic for others, and was the kind to help others in a humble way.”

McGowan said the high school students adored him.

High school student builds global tech company from St. Louis | FOX2now.com

While most of his peers are worrying about passing classes, impressing crushes, and lamenting the end of summer, 15-year-old Jaylen Bledsoe is brainstorming ways to grow his multi-million dollar IT company.

Three years ago Bledsoe started a tech company which later became Bledsoe Technologies, LLC, one of the fastest growing youth-led companies in the nation. Since then he’s made his mark as a successful entrepreneur all before he is old enough to drive.

According to KTVI, the St. Louis company is already worth $3.5 million, but Bledsoe has bigger goals. Although he’s just a sophomore in high school, he plans on attending Harvard University to study Business Administration and Computer Science.

Though Bledsoe gives credit to his mentor Scott Schnucks for encouraging him to take risks, he attributes his success to his faith in God. He recently wrote on his blog, “I’d like to thank my Lord and Savior. Without him, I would be nowhere. He’s given me the blessing to have the company and profound success, but to also be a motivation to others.”
