Some of these famous child prodigies are Gregory R Smith, Aelita Andre, Priyanshi Somani and Akrti Jaiswal

Many people believe that everybody is talented or rather blessed with some ability. However, not everybody hogs the limelight at a young age. Many famous personalities we know today are late bloomers, who became celebrities in their 20s and 30s. And then there are a few incredibly talented ones who stunned the world at a tender age. The words which best describe these talented kids are ‘child prodigies’. Hollywood actors Haley Joel Osment and MaCaulay Culkin are two famous child prodigies from the glorious 90’s who became heartthrobs after their stellar performances in the blockbusters ‘Sixth Sense’ and ‘Home Alone’ respectively. Apart from actors, there are several other kids who became world renowned celebrities for various other reasons. During recent times, Priyanshi Somani, Gregory R Smith and Aelita Andre have been in the news for their talent, which has taken the world completely by surprise. Priyanshi Somani, from India, has been hailed as the ‘human calculator’. She won the ‘Mental Calculation World Cup’ held in 2010 and has even earned a place in the ‘Limca Book Of Records’ and ‘Guinness Book Of World Records’ books for her outstanding accomplishments. Gregory R Smith won a Nobel Prize for Peace at the tender age of 12, making him one of the youngest recipients of the award. You would be surprised to know that Smith could remember chapters of books when he was barely 14 months old. Here are a few child prodigies who astonished the world with their remarkable abilities.
