A teenager in Florida has done something that might seem impossible on the surface , but is quite probable for those who want to accomplish more.  At the age of 16, Grace Bush is not only a high school graduate, she is also a graduate from college.  The teenager got international attention by earning a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Florida Atlantic University along with her “measley” high school diploma.

What an amazing black woman.

Grace was a participant in Florida Atlantic University’s dual enrollment program, which allows students to get both high school and college credit for the same classes.  This helps families to save on the expensive cost of college attendance.

“It’s kind of weird that I graduated college before high school,” she told CBS Miami.

Grace is one of nine children and she started college at the age of 13.
