18-year-old Gabrielle Turnquest was just called to the bar in the UK, making her the youngest person OF ALL TIME to ever qualify as a lawyer.

In over 600 years, nobody this young has accomplished that. Not to mention the average person takes the bar exam at 27.

Apparently this sweet, bright girl was not even what the average age was and "didn't fully realize the impact of it."

Originally a Florida resident, she plans to go back to America so she can qualify as a lawyer there. However she CAN also work in the Bahamas, where her parents are from, and where she'd ultimately like to practice law as well.

Gabrielle has aspirations to eventually be a "fashion law specialist." I'm not even entirely sure what that entails, but it sounds super cool.

And let's not forget that Miss Turnquest already made waves when she graduated Liberty University for her undergrad studies at 16.
