Graduating college is something many of us dream of – not to mention work hard for. After the hours and dollars put behind our education, most of us hope to emerge with our degree at some point during our twenties.

Laurent Simons completed high school in eighteen months, but now he’s broken into the world of higher education, earning his degree in electrical engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology at just nine. He now holds the world record for youngest ever college graduate – and is showing no signs of slowing down.
