Last week, just days before her high school graduation, 16-year-old Grace Bush collected a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from a south Florida university, fulfilling her proud parents’ cost-saving plan on tuition.

Bush will graduate from high school this Friday, but is already planning on heading back to Florida Atlantic University (FAU) in Boca Raton for a master’s degree in public administration before seeking a law degree.

Bush told CBS Miami that she will be pursuing a master's degree in the fall before going through law school. 

"I would eventually like to become chief justice of the United States," she said.
