Brilliant 14-year-old boy graduates US university, set to become a Neurosurgeon

A brilliant 14-year-old boy named Christian Armanti has graduated from Arizona State University in the United States with a bachelor’s degree in communications.

Christian is a teen from Mesa who graduated from Arizona State University with a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a minor in music performance. He finished high school early and was able to enroll in college at the age of 10.

“I started in regular elementary school with pre-K, kindergarten, first grade. I skipped third grade and went to fourth, but the exams were already showing that I was ready for college,” he said.

“The first week was a little difficult because of my age, when everyone was staring,” he said. “But now my classmates are getting used to it, and I’ve had a really good experience,” Christin said.

“Some people would just stare at me for a little bit, And some people would come up to me and ask me, ‘How old are you?’ and ‘Are you studying here,” he added.

Despite taking 17 credit hours of lectures for his physical classes, he still joined the university’s mariachi band as a trumpet player. He said it is an experience that has helped him grow as a musician. 


Christian credited his mother for always being supportive of his decision .“My mom takes me to campus, and both parents have helped me decide my class schedule. They’ve really supported me in everything,” he said.

Encouraging young teenagers who are considering skipping high school and going straight to college, he said they have to be very focused on their goal and have to know what they want to do and have a plan to achieve that goal.

Christian is currently taking pre-med classes as he plans to go to medical school and become a neurosurgeon. He said he became interested in it when he first learned about how the human brain works in second grade.

“I thought it was so interesting to see how the brain controls the human body. A lot of it still hasn’t been researched, so we don’t know a whole lot about the brain. I think that’s extremely interesting,” she said.
