Considering how much effort I put into my just-finished master's program, I marvel at people like this:
So, Mui is pretty sharp at math. Which makes sense. She has been working to master the subject since she was a little kid. According to Mui, she was learning addition and multiplication in preschool, and really, she just kept rolling. Mui proved to be so good at math that after fifth grade she started taking community college courses.

She didn’t stop there.

On Saturday, Mui will be the youngest among more than 8,700 graduates at George Mason University’s 50th commencement. She has earned a master’s degree in mathematics from Virginia’s largest public university, a milestone reached before she has even graduated from high school.
Wow!  And good for her!

To quote Tom Lehrer, "It's people like that who make you realize how little you've accomplished. It is a sobering thought, for example, that when Mozart was my age, he had been dead for two years." (from the introduction to "Alma" on That Was the Year That Was)

Holy cow. After seeing what I went through to get my MA in BS, this is incredible.
