13-year old boy becomes the youngest weather forecaster in Japan

20090307p2a00m0na016000p_size5A 13-year old Yokohama boy just became the youngest weatherman in the country. Kazuya Yamazaki wanted to become a weather forecaster since the 5th grade, when he read about it in a reference book. So he studied to take the semiannual forecaster exam, a difficult test that has a pass rate of 6%, and passed it on his fourth try. His mom claims he was a science geek since kindergarten. He told the Mainichi:

“I’m also interested in chemistry, and I want to do jobs like making medicines and discovering new materials.”

What a cute kid!
