She has an IQ of 162, higher than Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking. She is also autistic and has Asperger’s syndrome, which made her suffer bullying at school.
But Adhara Pérez Sánchez did not give up on her dreams. She finished elementary school at 5 years old, middle school at 6 years old, and high school at 8 years old. She is currently taking two online university courses in industrial engineering in mathematics and systems engineering. She also wants to study astrophysics at the University of Arizona, where she received an invitation from the president Robert C. Robbins.
Adhara’s interest in space science began when she went to the Universum Museum in Mexico City with a teacher from UNAM. She was amazed by the stars and planets, and decided to learn more about them. She also created a smart bracelet to help monitor the emotions of children with special abilities, inspired by her own experience.
Adhara is one of the 100 most important women in Mexico, according to Forbes magazine. She is also a public speaker who tells her story and motivates others to overcome difficulties and follow their dreams. She hopes to become a NASA astronaut someday and explore the universe.
Adhara Pérez Sánchez is an extraordinary example of perseverance, talent and ambition. She shows that nothing is impossible when you have a curious mind and a supportive family. She is a role model for girls and boys around the world who want to make a difference in science and society.
