Kairan Quazi, a 14-year-old graduate, has secured a full-time position at SpaceX, the space exploration company founded by Elon Musk.
Quazi, a Bangladeshi-American software engineer, recently completed his computer science and engineering degree at Santa Clara University in California.
He is scheduled to join SpaceX’s engineering team in the coming month, where he will contribute to the development of satellite internet technology for underserved rural areas.
According to an article from the Daily Mail, Quazi has been described as an exceptionally gifted individual with an almost superhuman level of intelligence.
He reportedly began speaking in full sentences at the age of two and demonstrated proficiency in complex mathematical equations by the age of six.
Quazi expressed that his school years were challenging because his peers struggled to keep up with his accelerated learning pace.
He described feeling physically and emotionally unfulfilled sitting through classrooms that did not cater to his intellectual needs.
However, he reassured skeptics that his childhood was not being compromised and that he was thriving in his pursuits.
“It was physically painful for me to sit through classrooms trapped, existentially bored, for hours and months — and eventually years — on end, and not learning at the level that I physically, intellectually and emotionally needed,” he said.
“For the people out there that I think are concerned that my childhood is being destroyed, I’m really here to tell you that that’s just not true.”
