Gabrielle Turnquest, 18, recently became the youngest person ever to pass the UK’s bar exam. The teenager, who’s originally from Florida, told The Telegraph, “I am honored to be the youngest person to pass the Bar exams but, really, I was not aware at the time what the average age was.” Turnquest added, “I didn’t fully realize the impact of it.”

Turnquest graduated from Liberty University in Virginia at 16 and is planning for a career as a fashion law specialist. And she comes from some impressive pedigree: her older sister, Kandi, passed the UK bar at 22. The average participant’s age for the University of Law’s Bar Professional Training Course? 27.
