21-year-old graduates medical school

At age 2, he could read.

At 9, he enrolled at Loyola University Chicago.

This year, at 21, Sho Yano becomes the youngest student in University of Chicago’s history to graduate with the medical degree, CNN affiliate WLS reported.

"If the pressure had come from anyone else, like my parents, I wouldn't have been able to keep going," said Sho Yano, who will soon start a pediatric neurology residency. "You have to be driven by something you want to do."
