Meet The Youngest Student Who Got Admitted Into Oxford University At The Age Of Six (Photos)

Joshua Beckford, at the age of six, emerged the youngest person with autism to be accepted to Oxford University and graduated at the tender age of 14 from the Department of History and Philosophy. 

Joshua’s story is quite remarkable, as he was diagnosed with high-functioning autism from an early age but never let the diagnosis damper his aspirations. 

Joshua Beckford, who grew up in Tottenham, England, lives with high-functioning autism, but it is hard to tell from his sheer intelligence. At just 10-months-old, Joshua could understand and memorize letters on a keyboard. 

By 3-years-old Joshua could read eloquently using phonics and was even speaking Japanese and Mandarin. At 4, Joshua taught himself how to operate complex surgical procedures using Microsoft Surgery Simulator and even gave presentations at community fundraising events. 

It was also identified that he is autistic and is an ambassador for autism, serving the community through charity work especially in Africa.

Joshua Beckford is an 11-year-old boy with Autism. This makes him special because he experiences the world differently. He has a passion for making the world a better place and believes if we don’t save our Planet nothing else that we do is important. 

Mr Joshua is a Nigerian born in United Kingdom. What do you have to say about Joshua's achievements.
