Now at 15 years, he will graduate from Sam Houston State University, Texas, United States with a bachelor’s degree in health sciences and become the youngest student to ever graduate from the university.

“Words can’t express how proud we are of him,” his father — Raphael Junie — said, according to the outlet.

“Financial aid spent hours with us to get Nehemiah’s award package worked out. They went the extra mile when speaking with the Federal Student Aid office, and were the most patient, resilient staff we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with,” she said.

While learning comes naturally for the 15-year-old, earning a college degree and maintaining a high GPA still came with a few difficulties.

“The biggest challenge was staying focused. It was especially difficult when the course material was uninteresting or something I already knew,” Juniel said.

“I often needed encouragement from others to put effort into such work before I put myself back on track again. My professors and teaching assistants were the most positive aspect of my experience at SHSU,” he added.

Juniel stated that he planned to become a Surgeon but as he grew older, he decided to study Cardiology. “Around the age of eight years old, I decided I wanted to become a surgeon of some sort,” he said. “As I grew, I continued to change and specify what kind of career I wanted to pursue. This culminated into my decision to study cardiology.”

He also hopes to inspire others to go after their dreams, as well, no matter their age.

“Don’t get discouraged if you run into a few issues or if you fail a couple of times. As long as you keep trying, you will eventually reach your goal,” he said.
