William Maillis is just 11-years-old, and he has already graduated from college after receiving his Associate in Arts degree from St. Petersburg College.

William's parents say he was doing basic math when he was only two, learned algebra by the time he turned four and has been touted by the president of the Florida institution as brilliant, open and collaborative. William started college in 2016 when he was just nine-years-old.
