Kids today can do everything -- literally! From the 6-year-old Spelling Bee champion, a 12-year-old who attends college to a 16-year-old who started a world famous fashion blog and influences major clothing companies -- there is no limit to these kids' amazing accomplishments.

7-Year-Old Piano Prodigy
Move over Mozart -- 7-year-old Alma Deutscher is the next big musical master. She may not be able to reach the pedals on her grand piano, but she's wowing the classical music world -- and she's racking up tens of thousands of views on YouTube. Deutcher composes her own pieces on piano and violin and tells NBC News, "They [her ideas] normally come to me when I'm resting... Because normally when I try, it's more difficult." Although Alma is considered by music critics to be a prodigy, she still takes weekly lessons and practices her music for about five hours a day. But as she assures NBC News, she still does "normal kid stuff."
