Clovis Hung, a 12-year-old prodigy hailing from the United States, serves as a shining example of the extraordinary capabilities displayed by child prodigies.
Currently on the verge of obtaining an astonishing five degrees from Fullerton College, his achievements are nothing short of awe-inspiring.
To fully comprehend the magnitude of this remarkable feat, consider that had Clovis followed the conventional educational path, he would still be in either 7th or 8th grade at the tender age of 12. Yet, he has defied all expectations and embarked on an exceptional academic journey.
According to a report in the LA Times, Clovis's journey began when he experienced a sense of ennui during his second-grade education at the mere age of 7.

Seeking intellectual stimulation beyond the confines of his curriculum, he yearned for more challenging academic pursuits to satiate his insatiable curiosity.
Despite initial reservations from his family, Clovis's mother made a bold decision in 2019 to withdraw him from traditional schooling and undertake the role of his homeschooling instructor.
“My husband and two daughters said I was crazy,” said his mother Song Choi, who’s worked as a tutor for more than 20 years.
Choi firmly believed in his unique blend of inquisitiveness and intellect, distinguishing him from his peers and fueling his potential for greatness.
According to IOL, within just a year of this alternative education approach, Clovis displayed remarkable progress, prompting his mother to contemplate enrolling him in a university setting.
Although Clovis's intellectual pursuits set him apart from others his age, he remains grounded and finds solace in the simple pleasures enjoyed by his peers.
Engaging in activities such as basketball and playing video games, he exemplifies the harmonious balance between extraordinary abilities and the innocence of childhood.
Clovis will graduate with associate of arts degrees in history, social sciences, social behaviour and self-development, arts and human expression, and science and mathematics.
He is expected to graduate with the Class of 2023 at Fullerton College, becoming the college’s youngest graduate in the institution’s 108-year history.
