Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - 10 January 2011

He may not consider himself a genius, but Jeshaiah Khor is certainly one smart kid. Only 12 years old, Jeshaiah was seen at an education fair in the capital recently shopping for a degree course in either Renewable Energy or Astrophysics.

Jeshaiah, who started reading newspapers when he was just 18 months old, completed his O-Level examination last month and is currently doing his A-Levels at the UCSI A-Level Academy. Science and Maths are his favourite subjects and among his favorite TV programmes are CSI and Mythbusters.

Asked why he chose Renewable Energy or Astrophysics, Jeshaiah replied, "The Earth is getting so polluted, and petroleum, which is a big source of energy today, is running out so we have to do something about it.”

His father, H.T. Khor said: “He has just started his A-Levels and we are looking around to see what is available, and hopefully apply for scholarships.”
