Tanishq Abraham, Nine-Year-Old Prodigy, Inducted Into Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society

Posted: Updated:

When we last checked in on Tanishq Abraham, the nine-year-old wunderkind from Sacramento, he was publishing essays on NASA's Lunar Science website, attending classes at American River College and enjoying his status as a Mensa genius.

Now the child prodigy can add a new accomplishment to his list: Acceptance into Phi Theta Kappa honor society.

Abraham, the (not surprisingly) youngest student at his school, is specializing in biology and physics and boasts a 4.0 grade point average.

"Taking college classes is kind of easy for me," he told ABC News.

Abraham and his sister, Tiara, made history when they became the youngest siblings ever to earn Mensa memberships (they both received the honor at four years old). He occasionally gives guest lectures to his classmates and has sung the National Anthem at San Francisco Giants and Oakland A's games.

But high-profile accomplishments aside, Abraham still enjoys nine-year-old boy activities like video games and soccer. "People always think I'm not enjoying my childhood and that I should stop college classes," he said to ABC. "But I am actually enjoying childhood."
