Joshua Beckford, 6-year-old Oxford University student

While we in America are still on the Pull-Up-Your-Pants campaign, here is what is happening overseas.

At 6, Beckford was the youngest person to ever attend Oxford University and as if that wasn’t enough, the now 8-year-old has already mapped out his future and plans to be a neurosurgeon as well as an astronaut at some point in his life. Beckford, who was too advanced for a standard curriculum and forced to be home-schooled, has also taken an interest in Egypt and is working on a children’s book about the historic nation.
