Moshe Kai Cavalin this 17 year old boy from San Gabriel, California. His mother is from Taiwan and father from Brazil. At age of 17 this boy has two bachelor’s degrees. It’s almost impossible for the kids of his age. He completed his graduation at the age of 11, later he also got a bachelor’s in math from University of California.

This year, he started online classes to get the master’s degree in cyber security. He also helps Nasa to develop surveillance technology for airplanes and drones. Between all that, he also published two books. He also has some plans for his airplane pilot’s license. His List of Achievement not completed here he also has so many trophies from martial arts tournaments.

After all these successes Cavalin insists that he’s more ordinary than people think. Cavalin said “My case isn’t that special. It’s just a combination of parenting and motivation and inspiration,” he also said “I tend to not compare myself that often to other people. I just try to do the best I can.”

His parents say he is always a quick learner. They told to press that “When he was 4 months old, he pointed to a jet in the sky and said the Chinese word of airplane. He hit the limits of his home schooling after studying trigonometry at age 7. Then his mom started driving him to community college.”

“I think most people just think he’s a genius, they believe it just comes naturally,” said Daniel Judge, a professor of mathematics who taught Cavalin for two years.

“I needed an intern who knew software and knew mathematical algorithms,” Arteaga says. Arteaga, his mentor at Nasa.

Now Cavalin is waiting for the day when he completed his 18th year of birth and then he will be able to get his full time driver’s license.
