A little girl has an IQ of 162, which is slightly higher than Albert Einstein’s and Stephen Hawking’s. Adhara Pérez is working on two online degrees right now. One is in systems engineering at Universidad CNCI, and the other is in industrial engineering with math at UNITEC and hopes to go to college in the U.S. soon.
Adhara Pérez has been taking IQ tests since she was four. My mother wouldn’t let me use the toaster when I was nine because she was afraid I’d burn the house down, so kudos to Adhara.
Adhara Pérez may not have reached double digits in age, but her IQ is well into the triple digits.
The 8-year-old Mexican City resident is said to have an IQ of 162, which is slightly higher than that of famed geniuses Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking, who both had an IQ of 160.
The child has her sights set on the University of Arizona, where she has been accepted to study astronomy and is currently brushing up on her English in order to fulfill her ambition.
She told NBC San Diego that she has to stay there for three months to study and become accustomed to hearing and speaking English.
Adhara wants to be an astronaut for NASA and has already been to the agency’s Johnson Space Center in Texas. She was diagnosed with autism when she was three years old.
The girl told the site, “I was made a mockery at school.” Pérez was bullied by her classmates, who called her “weirdo” and “oddball.”

“I noticed Adhara was playing in a small house, and they had her locked up.” “And they started chanting, “Oddball, weirdo!”” Nallely Sanchez, her mother, told the publication. “Then they started hitting the little house,” says the narrator. As a result, I told her, “I don’t want her to suffer.”
According to Sanchez, Pérez suddenly slipped into a “very profound” despair, and the brilliant young student no longer wanted to go to school. Teachers claimed Pérez would sleep in class and appear uninterested.
According to the source, Sanchez, who was aware of her daughter’s unique intelligence at home, realized that her daughter’s present education plan wasn’t the best fit for her and brought Pérez to therapy.
Because of this, the girl’s very high IQ was found out, and she was able to find a place to learn where people’s skills are taken into account.
According to the Yucatan Times, Pérez completed elementary education at the age of five, middle school at the age of six, and high school at the age of eight. Reports say that she is working on two degrees online right now. One is in industrial engineering and mathematics, and the other is in systems engineering.
The young genius — who authored a book on her experiences called “Do Not Give Up” — was also named to Forbes México’s list of the 100 Most Powerful Women in Mexico.
According to Vogue México, Pérez is working on a new smart bracelet that can track the emotions of differently abled youngsters and predict and avoid seizures and other outbursts.
Sanchez has plans to send Pérez to the United States to take entrance exams at the University of Arizona, which is the girl’s chosen school. Pérez, who is already studying English in preparation for the opportunity, wants to pursue a career in astrophysics. According to the Yucatan Times, she aspires to be an astronaut one day.
