PALM BAY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - Alyssa Watson just complete her first semester in college. That might not sound extraordinary, except for the fact that Watson is just 13 years old and a student at Florida State University.
"I'm at a higher grade level then most kids my age," she explained. "I passed the test and got high enough levels to enter the college."
Some of that may have rubbed off from mom Lateria, who has home-schooled Alyssa and her four siblings.
"That's the joy of home schooling for us, that we get to tailor it to each child," she said.
For Alyssa, it's always been her passion for engineering. She said that, in the next four years, she intends to courses in that field and other topics.
"I like hands on building stuff and programing," she said. "If you always work hard, believe in yourself, then you'll get where you want to go."
