Daniel Singh might only be eight-years-old but he already accomplished more than most people much older than him.
The grade three pupil is one of the youngest published authors in South Africa and Africa as a whole.
And, according to his proud father, Jay Singh, the little man is far from done. Daniel is set to publish his second book soon and his third book is already written.
Speaking to Briefly.co.za, Singh added his son would be the youngest author in the world to publish three books in such a short period of time.
Daniel was born to Jay and Karen Singh in KwaZulu-Natal. His father is an aspiring doctor in Neuro Entrepreneurship and Neuro Leadership.
Singh holds a MBA degree from a university in the UK and Chemical Engineering qualification which he obtained in SA.
Karen is auditor and one of the main influences in Daniel's life, with her husband describing her as a "pillar that cannot be discounted."Aside from their mentioned careers, both parents are also authors.
So, the apple does not fall far from the tree. Aside from writing more books, Daniel plans to launch an Authors Club for all aspiring authors, which he would do with the help from his dad.
We look forward to seeing what the young author achieves in the future.
