To say that 13-year old Natalyia Goolgar is a heavy-duty driving genius in the making is an understatement.

At her tender age, the young, bright spark has mastered an art that many persons much older than her are struggling to do.

Not only is she able to operate any motor vehicle, she is also operating heavy-duty vehicles of pretty much any make or size.

And following a video that was posted on social media showing her effortlessly operating a heavy duty tractor, family members of the teen say they have high hopes for the driving guru in the making.

One family member said he hopes the teenager, who barely stands close to five feet, will pursue a career in mechanical engineering. He believes that with her talent, she could easily become a world leader in the industry.

But while this is what he hopes for her, he made it clear that she will decide her own career path.

The family member said from a tender age, Natalyia had always showed an interest in motor vehicles, and was always fixing things and asking questions about mechanical devices. It is against that background that he always felt that her ability was a gift from God.
