Adorable 8-year-old girl with a higher IQ than Einstein


Adhara Perez might only be 8-years-old but she’s already known for her intellectual capabilities. Perez, who hails from the slums of Tlahuac, Mexico City, has an IQ of 162 – making it more than that of Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.

However, despite her high IQ, Perez has faced difficulties in life. She recalls being mocked in school after she was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome (autism spectrum) at the age of three. The classmates dubbed Perez “weird” and her mom, Nallely Sanchez, said her daughter was affected by it emotionally, to the point where she did not want to go to school.

Nallely saw her daughter was gifted, having advanced knowledge of algebra and the periodic table.

She took Perez to a psychiatrist who recommended that they go to the Talent Care Center. They confirmed Perez had an outstanding IQ and she was offered classes tailored to her abilities, according to theyucatantimes.com. By the age of eight, she had already completed high school and is already studying towards two online degrees – Industrial Engineering in Mathematics at UNITEC and Systems Engineering by CNCI.

The young genius hopes to become an astronaut by studying astrophysics at the University of Arizona.
