The 10-year-old Girl With A Higher IQ Than Einstein And Hawking Aspires To Be A Nasa Astronaut

Adhara Pérez, a Mexican child with an IQ of 162, made headlines in 2019 for having an IQ two points higher than that of physicists Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.

Adhara was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome when she was three years old. Autism may affect a person’s ability to interact socially.

Adhara was bullied at school because of her handicap at times. She was called “oddball” and “weirdo” by her peers and even by her teachers.

Adhara’s mother, Nallely Sanchez, witnessed how other kids teased her daughter.

“I saw Adhara playing in a small house, and they locked her up.” “Oddball, weirdo!“ they yelled, she told Yucatan Times. Then they went after the little house.” “I don’t want her to suffer,” I said.

As a result of the continuous bullying, Adhara became despondent. It was no longer her desire to attend school, and if she did, her teachers would catch her dozing during class. She was also uninterested in anything.

Adhara, on the other hand, was a special child with a level of intelligence uncommon among children her age. She already knew mathematics and the periodic table at such a young age.

Nallely took Adhara to a psychiatrist who recommended sending her to the Center for Attention to Talent (CEDAT), a gifted school. That’s when the child’s genius was confirmed.

She completed elementary school at the age of five, middle school at the age of six, and high school at the age of eight.

Adhara is pursuing two online degrees, one in Industrial Engineering in Mathematics from UNITEC, and the other in Systems Engineering from CNCI. Her dream is to be a NASA astronaut.

At the University of Arizona, Adhara grew interested in researching astrophysics. The college had already awarded her a scholarship, but she was unable to go due to the difficulties in obtaining a US visa.

In 2019, Forbes magazine named Adhara one of Mexico’s 100 most prominent women. She has also written a memoir, “Don’t Give Up,” in which she recounts her life experiences.

In addition to helping autistic boys, Adhara wants to make science more accessible to women.

Yuri Gagarin’s grandson was also invited to Russia after meeting him at a science and technology conference.

Adhara was invited to the special event in Russia due to her brilliance, extensive research on space and time, and outstanding performance in class.

“The biggest challenge was breaking the myth that autistic children cannot or do not achieve things,” Nallely said.

According to her mother, Adhara is very pleased to meet brilliant children from around the world.

“Regardless of our children’s circumstances, parents always encourage them to pursue their dreams since dreams always come true. With consistency, 50 percent of young people and 50 percent of parents can do it,” she said.

She also presented the progress of her project-a smart bracelet that can study people’s emotions-at an event in Dubai. The project is currently being developed and is seeking sponsors.

She has a bright future ahead of her, and we’re excited to see what she does!
