America's Next President-Greg Smith?

Like most boys his age, Greg Smith likes mountain climbing, playing soccer and reading - except this 11 year-old Honors student is in his second year of college at Randolph-Macon College. Greg is currently enrolled in classes like Multivariable Calculus, French 5 and Honors History of Science. And, as if that doesn't take up enough time, he's also working on spreading world peace.

Not only is he the youngest person to graduate from high school in all of Florida, but he's also the youth spokesperson for the World Centers of Compassion for Children. This organization is sending the word of peace through the voice of children. Greg even started International Youth Advocates (IYA) and gets to travel all over to promote peace and talk about youth. His organization is a voice for young people who care about what is happening in the world and in their communities.

Speaking in front of a large audience might be enough to make your knees wobble, but they didn't wobble for Greg when he met several world leaders. He's met former US President Bill Clinton and former President of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev. He's also met with former Nobel Peace Prize winners Betty Williams from Ireland, Desmond Tutu, South Africa's Archbishop and Jose Ramos-Horta from East Timor, to talk about his education and peace plans. Not only that, but Greg went before the Security Council of the UN, State of Florida General Assembly and State of World Forum so he could get as many people and organizations to join his cause.

The little rocket scientist also worked on a top-secret project for NASA. How cool is that? Not that he's bragging. Greg considers himself to have a normal 11 year-old's life. He's not the youngest person to start college, but not too many people his age have tried to tackle the global issues that he has. Greg plans to earn three Ph.D.s, one in biomedical research, one in aerospace engineering and one in political science. It's not surprising that he says he'd like to be President one day.

    It don't really think this can be based on gender. I would say it's all about that persons upbringing. But, if I had to choose, I would say men. My dad is smart cook that seasons stuff to the tee and knows how to improvise. Don't get me wrong, my mom is a great cook as well.
