Two years ago, when Adhara Pérez Sánchez was just 8 years old, she made the news of being a child genius. Sanchez has an incredibly high IQ—so much so that it is even higher than Einstein and Stephen Hawking! According to Goal Cast, Sanchez was diagnosed with autism at age 3. A year later, she suffered a seizure that nearly left her in a coma. This resulted in the little girl losing her ability to use her hands for a year. But she was determined to bounce back and with the help of physical therapy, she was getting better. “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,” shared her mom, Nayeli Sanchez.

The youngster was also taunted in school because kids thought her to be "different." Her mom recalled, “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.” At just 8 years old, she began studying for two engineering degrees! She hopes to be a scientist and to become an astronaut at NASA.
