A teenager with cerebral palsy and autism graduated with honors in New York after completing his last year of school at 15. Sean Andrade achieved academic success at Sewanhaka High School in Floral Park, Long Island.

On top of that, the young man will become the youngest student on campus at Stony Brook University, where he hopes to earn a full scholarship. “If you’re determined to do something, you can make it,” he said during an interview for Fox News 5.

During that interview, he recounts that he was able to read before he could walk, and then he skipped a fourth grade in school. By seventh grade, he was ready to skip another grade and go straight to ninth grade. His mother, Kelly, said she was proud of Sean Andrade’s academic studies and goals.
