Kid’s books: Suppose you could do anything?
Suppose you could do anything, would you still want to read kid’s books? Whatever you dream about, you should pursue it. Let’s talk about the gifted young man named Carson Huey-You, who was enrolled in college at ten years old? Isn’t that phenomenal? Imagine that when Carson graduates, he won’t even be old enough to drive! How did his mom know that he was a gifted child? One big clue was that when he was happily reading chapter books at two years old. By the time that Carson had celebrated his third birthday, he had mastered addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. When he was very young, Carson was home-schooled by his mom. Carson’s mom enrolled him in school when he was five years old, but he jumped from Kindergarten to eighth grade in one giant leap. Before long, Carson took his SAT’s and received a score of 1770. What do you think Carson dreams about? He wants to become a quantum physicist and earn a PhD before he celebrates his twentieth birthday. He has lofty goals for sure. Carson doesn’t believe in taking the easy street by studying courses that would not challenge him. He tackled Physics, History, Calculus and Religion in his first semester at Texas Christian University. Are you thinking Carson is too serious for fun? Not a chance, he loves Myth Busters and Star Wars, basketball, football, and Minecraft. In addition, Carson is a self-taught pianist, who loves to spend time relaxing with his friends.
