William Maillis is not an average 11-year-old. He graduated from St. Petersburg College with an associate degree in Florida Saturday and has been called a “genius.”

He wants to be an astrophysicist and scientifically prove the existence of God when he grows up, according to Spectrum News 9.

“Everybody has gifts from God. I was gifted with knowledge and science and history,” Maillis said, according to ABC Action News.

Maillis, the son of an Orthodox priest, has always been a fast learner and graduated high school at age 9, according to the Tampa Bay Times. He quoted a Bible verse in Greek at his high school commencement. (RELATED: Father Of The Year: How To Train Your Child To Be A Football Prodigy)
