Adara Maite Perez Sanchez is only 8 years old, but she has already graduated from high school and is studying at two universities.
How did she do so young? According to her mother, it was not easy, but the whole family helped her. And, of course, we must remember that Adara’s IQ is 162 points — two points higher than that of the brilliant Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.
Adara was born in Boca del Rio (Mexico), but later moved with her parents to Mexico City, the country’s capital.
At the age of three, the girl was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, a behavioral disorder that prevents normal socialization. It was very difficult for her.
In kindergarten, she was considered strange and the teachers did not know how to help her join the team. She had no friends,” said her 33-year-old mother, Nayeli.
Despite the difficulties, the mother saw great potential in her daughter. The girl studied very quickly, showing special interest in mathematics and astronomy.
Adara passed a special test and was recognized as gifted. Unfortunately, the gifted school was too expensive for his parents.
Adara graduated from high school at an early age and practically entered two universities at once: she studies via the Internet to become an industrial and systems engineer, receiving a scholarship. In addition, she studies mathematics at home and studies English at the National Independent University of Mexico, one of the most prestigious universities in Latin America.
But that’s not all: Adara participates in the international aerospace program, where NASA experts teach.
Adara dreams of becoming an astronaut. Its hero is Buzz Aldrin, one of the first people to walk on the moon.
In two years, Adara plans to finish her studies in Mexico and enter the University of Arizona (USA) in astrophysics – she has already received an invitation
In 2019, Forbes magazine included Adara in the list of the most influential Mexican women, alongside famous athletes, businesswomen and scientists.
And in her spare time, Adara behaves like an ordinary girl: she plays with her sister, watches TV and builds from the Lego constructor
