Genius Girl with Higher IQ Than Einstein, Goes to College at 8 Years Old

At just 8 years old, a girl in Mexico City, Mexico, is making waves online as she begins her college education at such a tender age! What’s more, the girl had actually completed two online college courses and is set to begin her formal college education by taking astrophysics!

This impressive young girl was identified as Adhara Perez from Tlahuac, Mexico. She hails from a poor village, yet this young girl impressed the world with her intelligence after it was announced that she has an IQ of 162 – that’s a whopping 2 points higher than the IQ of Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking. Wow.

But because of her amazingly high IQ, Adhara was misunderstood as a kid. Back in preschool, she didn’t even have any friends because the other kids thought her strange. She didn’t like playing because she thinks ‘games are boring’. Instead, she prefers reading books; not the usual children’s books but textbooks!

Her teachers were also worried because she prefers to sleep in class. But a child psychologist would soon determine why that is so. It turned out that Adhara Asperger’s syndrome and the amazingly high IQ that made her brain think the preschool lessons were too simple and boring.

The psychologist advised Adhara’s parents to bring her to the Center for Attention to Talent (CEDAT) where she would complete her elementary education at a tender age of 5, middle school by 6, and high school by 8!

She aspires to become an astronaut by studying astrophysics at the University of Arizona (UA). Impressed by her story, UA President Robert Robbins invited her to the school.

She has a bright future ahead of her, and I hope to welcome her to campus one day as a Wildcat,” Robbins said.
