An eight-year-old girl from Mexico was said to have a higher Intelligence Quotient (IQ) than Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawkings. Adhara Perez has an IQ of 162 while on the other hand Einstein and Hawkings were said to have 160 IQs.

The kid was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome and lives in the slums of Mexico. This means that she finds it difficult to have a normal social interaction. She is not good at non-verbal communication. Although it seems like her having a high IQ is an amazing thing, it is causing a lot of issues for her. Perez fell into depression and does not want to go to school.

Her mother Nallely Sanchez opened up about the treatment her daughter gets in school and from others around her. One day her friends locked her up in a made-up little house. They were playing games and started bullying her. They called her names like ‘weirdo’. They even hit the little house. My daughter has suffered enough and I don’t want her to suffer anymore.

After all, this happened, Adhara's mother took her to therapy. They went to a place called Talent Care Centre and it is then that her higher IQ was discovered. She was identified as being an extraordinary child with amazing intelligence.

Perez completed the studies. At the young age of just 8, she was able to grasp all the knowledge and completed the syllabus meant for elementary, middle, and high school students altogether. She even completed her degree and has done online courses. The little girl has written a book on her life experience, titled 'Do Not Give Up.'

She is now working hard to help other kids who might be needing help. Adhara is now trying to build a bracelet that can monitor the emotions of differently-abled children. It will help in identifying when their emotions are drastically changing and in case they might need help. this way you can prevent seizures or other problems.
