He earned math credits in sixth grade that put him three grades ahead. Since then, he’s mastered AP Calculus and Calculus 2 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He’s also taken graduate-level math classes.

Kenan is not old enough to drive. He said his parents will move out to California with him. Stanford is located between San Francisco and San Jose.
