From Security Guard to Teacher - History of an outstanding genius person

Rashidul Bari an outstanding genius person who become security guard to teacher moved to the United States in 2000. He is currently a doctoral student at Columbia University and he teaches mathematics at Bronx Community College.

He said the history at his Facebook profile. 

1. I earned GED(High school diploma) in 2004 .
2. I earned 5 bachelor’s degree from 5 different American Universities.

3. Master's Degree in Physics from New York University (NYU).
4. Ph.D. in Math from Columbia University (Expected 2020).

1. Security guard for 15 years (2000-2015)
2. Math Lecturer, City University of New York (2015-Present).

Lehman College posted my poster across its campus to inspire students.

His Dream: 
I want to earn 3 more Ph.Ds
(1) Physics 

(2) Chemistry and 
(3) Computer Science. 

In his fb status he said, "I’m the only person in the world who earned 5 bachelor’s degrees. Here’s how I did it: 

GED/High School Diploma in 2004, USA 

My first bachelor’s degree took 4 years, 2004-2008. I earned it from York College in Political Science. Then I earned a master’s degree in political science from Brooklyn College, in 2009. I earned my 2nd bachelor’s degree in Economics from CCNY in 2011.

I earned my 3rd, 4th, and 5th bachelor’s degrees respectively in math, physics and computer science from Lehman college in 2014. I was the only student who accomplished such a milestone from Lehman, which is why they posted my banner across their campus (to inspire others). I earned a $100,000 scholarship from New York University to study physics.

Once I completed my second master’s from NYU, I got accepted at Columbia University in a doctoral program.

How did I do it? 
In the USA, it takes at least 120 credits to complete a bachelor’s degree. This is why it takes 4 years, at least. Once you complete your first bachelor’s degree, then it won’t take 4 years. In fact, it takes only 2 years or even less (you can take 18 credits or more a semester) as you need to complete a maximum of 40 credits in the subject you are pursuing. So, here’s a breakdown:

First bachelors: Political Science, CUNY York College, 4 years
2nd Bachelor’s, Economics, City College of New York, 2 year
3rd Bachelor, 4th, and 5th: Math, Physics and Computer Science, Lehman College, 4 years.
First master’s, Brooklyn College, 1 year
Second master’s, NYU, 1 year
Doctoral at Columbia University (2016-present)."

For the newbies he said, "If you don't get your dream job with 1 bachelor's degree, don't give up, do 2, do 3, do 4--or like me, do even 5 bachelor’s degree. Do as many as it takes to accomplish your dream but never give up."
