Kuala Lumpur, Nov 11 (ANI): A Malay boy, who is only 10 years old, has become the CEO of two companies and a lecturer who charges RM 6,000 per hour.
According to Sin Chew Daily and Nanyang Siang Pau, 10-year-old Adi Putra Abdul Ghani's mother Serihana Alias operates the two companies, which sell vitamins under the brand Adi.
Adi Putra, who is supposed to be attending Year Four classes at his age, has stopped schooling, and he has now instead been invited to certain local universities to give lectures.
The Perak-born child genius, who moved to Selangor with his family a few years ago, was quoted as saying that he wanted to be a lecturer in Islamic studies.
Serihana said he keeps track of foreign stock markets via the Internet and studies at home.
"He's interested in mathematics, physics, chemistry, geography and biology, but not so much in history and politics. He dislikes reading books but loves spending his time browsing the Net for study materials," the Star Online quoted Serihana as saying.
"Adi also hopes to study in Canada, Singapore or the United States, but we have yet to come to a final decision," she added. (ANI)
