Not too long ago, Elite Daily introduced you to Iris Grace, a 5-year-old painter from the United Kingdom.

What’s special about Iris and her work is her story. Iris, who has autism, proves through her art she can do anything she puts her mind to. As a matter of fact, there are plenty of autistic people with tons of talent.

For example, here’s interesting story about an 11-year-old boy with autism who sat in on his mom’s college class (she’s a professor). The boy went up to the white board and drew out the entire world map using just his memory.

If that’s not impressive, I don’t know what is! As a matter of fact, people in the classroom were so amazed they took out their phones and snapped photos, which eventually surfaced on Reddit days later.

Check out the photos below for a closer look.

At first sight, you’d think you’re just look at a map of the world.

But what’s interesting about this particular map is how it was drawn.

The 11-year-old son of a college professor was invited by his mom to come into her class. That’s when he drew this world map.

The professor’s son, who has autism, was able to draw this map using nothing but his memory. How many people do you know who can do that?
