Forget Renaissance Man. This teen is a phenom for the 21st century.
At 15-years-old, Maya Burhanpurkar joined a graduate level study in theoretical physics and helped prove a centuries-old theory. Now 18, she's still shaking up the scientific world.
I'm just really excited and interested in everything, and that's caused me to learn as much as I can about as many things as possible.
Physics is not Burhanpurkar's only passion: music, astronomy, filmmaking, public speaking and astronomy are also part of this young woman's life and interests.
