This 13-Year-Old Who Just Earned His Fourth College Degree With A 4.0 GPA Is Here To Shatter Your Self-Worth


What were you doing at age 13? Discovering the varying states of your reproductive organs through the conduit of the bra and panty section of your mother’s Macy’s magazine? Same!

Jack Rico is here to guilt-trip your 13-year-old self.

The California teenager just graduated with four associate’s degrees, completing the feat in just two years.

According to CNN, Rico graduated from Fullerton College in California last weekend, making him the youngest student to graduate in the school’s 107-year-old history.

Rico earned associate’s degrees in history, human expression, social behavior and social science, while maintaining a 4.0 GPA.

“I just love learning new stuff,” Rico told CNN. “I love knowing more about the world and all the different things we could study.”

I enjoy three-to-seven double IPAs on a weekday and passing out with one shoe on.

Rico’s mother, Ru Andrade, claimed she knew her son was a brainiac as far back as his fourth birthday when he asked for his sole gift to be a trip to the White House.

“I told him that was a really big trip for a three-year-old,” Andrade said. “Just kidding around, I said, ‘If you can memorize all the presidents, I’ll take you.'”

A week later, Rico came up to his mom and surprised her with his response.

“He said, ‘I already knew the presidents, but I memorized all the vice presidents so that we could go,'” Andrade recalled. “So that’s when I knew, ‘Oh, you’re already smarter than me.'”

Rico is now heading to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas to study history on a full ride.

If I see this dude in a job interview in a year, it’s on.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
