9-Year-Old Girl With Autism Who Was Mocked At School Has Higher IQ Than Einstein And Hawking


Adhara Perez Sanchez is an extremely intelligent 9-year-old girl that’s breaking the stereotypes and misconceptions about individuals with developmental disorders. She has proven the world that she possesses incredible intellectual capabilities, and she made a name for herself in academic circles with her impressive IQ score of 162!

PEOPLE reports that the score is even higher than notable geniuses such as Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking, both of whom had an estimated IQ score of 160.

Perez has already graduated from high school and is currently working towards earning two degrees, one in industrial engineering in mathematics and one in systems engineering.

The young Perez was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, which is a developmental disorder that belongs to the Autism spectrum and can cause difficulties with social interactions. It was revealed that she was mocked at school and she was called names by other students.

Despite being a very bright young student, her mother revealed that she fell into a ‘very deep’ depression and did not want to go to school anymore. So, the parents started looking for therapy for their daughter, and it became a major turning point for the family when it was identified that the girl has an IQ of 162.

So, they started looking for a learning environment that adapts to her unique skill sets, and that’s when all took off. Perez finished elementary school aged 5, middle school aged 6, high school aged 8, and she currently attends a university in Mexico where she studies systems engineering and mathematics.

The girl even wrote a book about her experiences titled ‘Do Not Give Up’, and she was featured in Forbes Mexico’s 100 Most Powerful Women in Mexico.

In addition to all the other projects she’s working on, Perez now also works on developing a new smart bracelet to help autistic kids, and the device will be able to monitor the emotions of differently-abled children and anticipate (and possibly prevent) seizures and other outbursts.
