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.”

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.
