This physics major just graduated from Texas Christian University. Oh, and he's only 14.


He might not be old enough to vote or drive, but 14-year-old Carson Huey-You graduated from Texas Christian University on Saturday. 

Huey-You was among more than 2,000 students receiving degrees, but he made history by becoming the youngest person to ever graduate from Texas Christian University, which is located in Fort Worth. 

He graduated with a double minor in Chinese and math and a major in physics. 

"I'm just a normal 14-year-old kid just doing college-level academic work," Huey-You told CBS News

The 14-year-old graduate told the  Fort Worth Star-Telegram that his favorite thing about college was, "getting to learn new things about things you never thought about, things that you never knew existed, things that you might not even think about thinking about." Huey-You started taking classes at TCU when he was just 11. Like any other college student, he told the Star-Telegram he had to learn how to deal with really difficult classes and setbacks. 

Huey-You's younger brother Cannan is following in his footsteps and graduated from high school this past Friday. He's just 11 years old and starts TCU in the fall. Cannan plans to pursue a double major in astrophysics and engineering, CBS News reports. 

“Try to stay focused on what you are doing,” Huey-You told the Star-Telegram, offering advice for other teens. “Even if it seems really, really challenging and hard to get through, stay with it.”
