Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking are both lower on the IQ scale than a 10-year-old from Tlahuac, Mexico City.
Her exceptional intellectual abilities are shattering misconceptions about people with developmental disabilities.
According to PEOPLE, Adhara Pérez has an IQ of 162, which is two points higher than Einstein and Hawking, both of whom had IQs of 160.
She was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome when she was three years old, according to the Yucatan Times.
The developmental disorder, which is on the autistic spectrum, can make social interactions difficult.
She told the media that she had been “made fools at school.” Her classmates called her ‘strange,’ and her teachers predicted that she would struggle at the school.
The child’s mother, Nallely Sanchez, was unaware of the situation and did not want her daughter to struggle. ‘She stated,’ she said ‘Adhara was playing in a small house when I arrived, and they had her locked up. ‘Oddball, weirdo!’ they began to scream.’
She went on to say, ‘Then they went after the small house. As a result, I stated that I did not want her to suffer. And she informed me she no longer wanted to attend to school and had fallen into a deep melancholy.’
Aside from the aforementioned, Adhara’s teacher claimed that she dozed in class and didn’t put out any effort.
Nallely, on the other hand, was aware that her daughter has a better comprehension of mathematics and the periodic table, so she took her to therapy, where the psychiatrist recommended that they visit the Talent Care Center.
As a result, the girl’s exceptionally high IQ was uncovered, and she was able to seek out a learning environment that suited her wide skill set.
Pérez was five years old when he graduated from elementary school, six years old when he graduated from middle school, and eight years old when he graduated from high school.
She is currently pursuing two online degrees, one in industrial engineering with UNITEC and the other in Systems Engineering with CNC.
Do Not Give Up was the title of a book written by the child prodigy about her experiences. Forbes México named her one of the 100 Most Powerful Women in Mexico.
Pérez is working on a new smart wristband, according to Vogue México, that can track the emotions of differently-abled children, detecting and preventing tremors and other outbursts.
Nallely believes in her daughter and plans to travel to the United States with her to take the University of Arizona’s admission exam in the hopes of earning a scholarship.
As a result, she is currently studying English and pursuing her interest in astrophysics.
