2-year-old New York girl is whiz in geography

(NBC) - Harika Petchetti, 2, is not only already reading, but she's a budding geography whiz.

Her love for geography started when her 7-year-old brother was studying for a geography bee and she learned alongside him.

Upstairs in her home, Harika's parents have put up a map of the U.S. and a map of the world. Harika knows all of the states, as well as all of the countries of the world and their capitals.

She also has a deck of flash cards with flags, and she can identify all of them.
