¡En serio! As a freshman in high school, Ramos started taking classes at Kellogg Community College. After completing several courses, she realized taking a few more would allow her to get a degree. “I was just taking college classes the first semester. Like I didn’t plan on graduating at all,” she said to WWMT CBS News in Michigan. “Then my mom started looking into it and she was like, ‘Wait a second, you like taking these classes, you might as well just like get your degree.’ I’m like, ‘Oh my goodness, that’s such a good idea!'”

And a good idea it was! Ramos didn’t get one associate degree, but TWO. One in general studies and the other in art. Ramos told WWMT CBS News: “I like art, I’m not going into the art field but I like art so I was like, ‘Oh yeah, might as well get that too.'” You know, ¡como si nada!

Ramos, who wants to major in psychology, won’t be getting a third associate degree. She’s planning on participating in Model UN and taking a few more college courses before she graduates high school. Her goal after college? Ramos says she wants to be a high school counselor.

Get it, girl!
