Autistic Girl Has Higher IQ Than Einstein And Is Completing 2 Engineering Degrees

Adhara Pérez Sánchez is eight years old with a higher iQ than Einstein, and her accomplishments are destroying misconceptions about disabilities.


An impressive life

Sanchez has gone through a lot in her young life, and she remains and an inspiration. At just eight years old, she is studying toward two engineering degrees, and her dream is to be a scientist and to become an astronaut at NASA.

It’s been a struggle every step of the way, though. At three years old, Sanchez was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and at the age of four she had a seizure that nearly left her in a coma.

The episode caused her to lose full use of her hands for a year and led to physical therapy.

"Still, she never gave up. In fact, she looked to one of her heroes for guidance. “Adhara followed the example of Stephen Hawking; she said that despite having a disability, that didn’t keep him from achieving great things. She will always admire him because she likes black holes.”

Everything happens for a reason

The family discovered that Adhara's seizures were caused by one hemisphere of her brain being more developed than the others. So, she was exceptional in TWO ways: autism and an incredibly high IQ. In fact, her IQ was found to be even higher than Einstein and Stephen Hawking.

"Adhara was bullied in school, and kids thought she was 'weird,' but that too left her in good company. 'When Albert Einstein was young, they didn’t believe in him; they thought his ideas were foolish, but with time he proved them and that is the reason why Adhara likes this character,'"

Overcoming our limitations makes us stronger

Ultimately, what we perceive as our biggest limitations may end up being our strengths, and despite her “disability” this girl is headed for greatness. Who knows, maybe we will soon see the first teenage astronaut in space!
