Three sisters from a family of nine graduate from college years early

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Meet Grace, Gabrielle and Gisla. They are all bound for successful careers.

The sisters were enrolled in the dual program at Florida Atlantic University while in high school. All three now have college degrees.

"I am 16-years-old and I want to be the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court," Grace Bush said.

Gabrielle wants to be a Secretary of Health and 19-year-old Gisla, who is named after her mother, said she wants to be Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

"I would stay up really late at night and get up really early in the morning, I had to study constantly," Grace said.

Gabrielle says the hard work paid off. "Limited access to social media and the internet and made sure I stayed focus on what I had to do and seek help if I needed it."

Help and determination came from their parents who have 9 children. Their mother Gisla homeschooled the kids until they went  off to college. "Help your children to set goals and set step by step so that they are achievable and don't give up."

But their mother says it's more than a matter of just graduating early; her girls will contribute to society. "If they are going to effect change, if they are going to make life better for mankind, then they need to be in top positions, so that they can effect change."

 Gisla, her oldest daughter said, "What I recognize is in my community is that many minority neighborhoods are overlooked and I feel as if I can be there and effect the change in that regard."

This won't be the last time we hear about the Bush family. This year the girls will be getting their Masters degrees.
