Adhara Pérez Sánchez is a remarkable 11-year-old from Mexico City who stands out for her extraordinary talent. Sánchez is on track to earn a master’s degree in engineering and has a 162 IQ, which is higher than that of famous physicist Albert Einstein.
She already holds degrees in systems engineering from CNCI University and industrial engineering with a focus in mathematics from Technological University of Mexico.
As a result of bullying, Sánchez, who was autistic, finished elementary school at age five and middle and high school in just one year.
She aspires to become an astronaut and is a gifted student and public speaker.
Working for NASA is her ultimate goal. By collaborating with the Mexican Space Agency to encourage young students to pursue careers in mathematics and space exploration, she is actively pursuing this goal.
Sanchez, who was raised in a low-income neighborhood, experienced a reversal in her speech development at age three and was later given the autism diagnosis.
Sanchez’s mother told Marie Claire in an interview that her daughter started to isolate herself after being made fun of by other students for having a disability and feeling like her teachers didn’t care about her situation.
The professors weren’t too sympathetic; they claimed that I should have wished for her to finish a project. “She started to isolate herself; she didn’t want to play with her classmates and felt strange, different,” says Sanchez’s mother, Nayeli Sánchez. ”.
She was able to attend class for a while, but eventually she was unable to do so, dozed off, and lost interest in activities. Her mother claimed that because of her daughter’s melancholy demeanor, others had made fun of her.
Sanchez had to change schools three times as a result of his unfortunate circumstances. But she persisted in her intellectual curiosity.
The mother of Sanchez noted that her daughter was capable of memorization and had even taught herself algebra. Because she assumed her daughter was simply bored, she enrolled her in therapy.
When a therapist recognized Sanchez’s extraordinary ability, the Center for Attention to Talent (CEDAT), a school for gifted kids, was then suggested to accept Sanchez.
The university established Sanchez’s IQ to be higher than that of Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein.
“I want to visit space and colonize Mars. Imagine being somewhere else if you don’t like where you are right now. Since I picture myself working at NASA, it’s worth a try, the 11-year-old told Goalcast.
