Washington better prepare because the Bush family is ready to take over. And no, not the Bush family that you are thinking of. We are talking about Gisla and Bobby Bush and their nine children. Gisla is an architect and a lawyer. Bobby is a human resources analyst. All of their children were homeschooled and are some of the brightest young minds in the country. Three of the oldest had graduated from college while they were still teenagers. They all have dreams of working in Washington some day.
Grace Bush made headlines in 2013 when she graduated from high school and college in the same week. She had begun taking college credit courses at the age of 13 while she was still in high school. She would wake up at 5:30 in the morning, go to her 8am classes, and for the next 14 hours she would be in classes or playing the flute in the orchestra. She would come home and study, go to bed, and then get up ready for the next day of learning. While some may feel that this is an extremely long day for a teenager it was actually a time saver and money saver. Grace graduated from high school and also graduated from college within the same week at 16, receiving her Bachelor’s Degree in criminal justice. She continued her studies and at 18 received her Master’s Degree in public administration. Her goal is to be the Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court.
Gabrielle Bush was 18 when she graduated from college with a Bachelor’s Degree in health administration. Just a year later she also earned her Master’s Degree of public administration. Her goal is to become the Secretary of Health. She says that one of the most important things that we are dealing with right now is healthcare. She wants to make sure that everyone has the access to healthcare that they so desperately need but are not getting at the moment.
The oldest of the three girls, Gisla, graduated from college when she was 18 with a Bachelor’s Degree in urban design. After another two years she obtained her Master’s Degree in urban development and planning. She currently works for Pompano Beach Development Services where she is working in her chosen field.
The younger siblings are still in the process of being homeschool but they are all as equally bright as the three oldest girls. The youngest is 11 months old and already knows how to play the violin. They have all begun reading at very early ages and will most likely go on to graduate early just as their sister’s did. Gisla credits her father, William Chennault, for the work ethic that the family has. He was a World War II veteran and a roofer. She had 10 other siblings and they all graduated college as well. The Bush’s are an amazing family and this will not be the last that we hear of them.
