LOS ANGELES (NBC) - There’s an 11-year old southern California boy who willprobably make you feel like an underachiever.
Because even though he's yet to go through puberty he's alreadya college graduate.
Eleven year old Moshe Kai Cavalin demonstrates some of themartial arts moves that have earned him numerous medals andtrophies.
Like most kids, Moshe wants to be a lot of different thingswhen he grows up.
"I want to be a movie actor and compete in the 2016 Olympics inmartial arts," said Cavalin.
But unlike most kids, Moshe has been attending East Los AngelesCommunity College for the past two years, studyingastrophysics.
He's fascinated by worm holes.
"A worm hole is the bridge described by the Einstein theory thatconnects space, time, universe," Cavalin said.
At a time when his peers are finishing 6th grade, this onlychild of a Taiwanese mother and an Israeli father is trying on acap and gown preparing to graduate with a 4.0 from communitycollege.
"I don't consider myself a genius because there are 6.5 billionpeople in this world and each one is smart in his or her own way,"Cavalin said.
He's not only humble, he's also personable, outgoing and wellrounded.
Moshe plays the piano, he's partial to Israeli folk songs andclassical music, but his tastes are definitely varied.
"Dean Martin, The Rat Pack, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Ilike them," said Cavalin.
There is one thing this boy wonder does not like.
"I feel it's a waste of time playing video games, I feel its awaste of time and it's not helping humanity in any way."
Moshe's original plan after graduating from ELACC was to gostraight to a four year university, but he's since changed his mindand now plans to take six months to a year off to go back to whathe calls his regular life.
"Which is going back to martial arts competition and scubadiving and also some piano," Cavalin said.
This avid book reader is also writing his own book intended toteach kids how to do well academically.
"I like to study just because knowledge goes to wisdom andonly by wisdom can we help the world," said Cavalin.
And helping the world is how Moshe wants to make his mark.
A goal he will no doubt achieve.
The heaviest snow showers will track through midday.
