LOS ANGELES (AP) - One thing 14-year-old Moshe Kai Cavalin dislikes is being called a genius.

All he did, after all, was enroll in college at age 8 and earn his first of two Associate of Arts degrees from East Los Angeles Community College at age 9.

Now, at 14, he’s poised to graduate from UCLA this year. He’s also just published an English edition of his first book, “We Can Do.”

The 100-page guideline explains how other young people can accomplish what Cavalin did through such simple acts as keeping themselves focused and approaching everything with total commitment.

He’s hoping it will show people there’s no genius involved, just hard work.

Cavalin, whose mother is Chinese, originally wrote the book in Mandarin.

After it sold well in Asia, he translated it into English.
