When he was 4 years old, the Mexican prodigy achieved IQ 162. 8 years old, he studied two disciplines at university, published books and researched equipment to support autistic children.
"I want to become an astronaut to change the world," said Adhara Pérez Sánchez, the 8-year-old prodigy known as "Mexico's little Einstein" .
Currently, Adhara studies Systems Engineering and Mathematics at Universidad CNCI - University in Mexico.

According to NBC, at the age of 4, Adhara Pérez Sánchez took an intelligence test and achieved an IQ of 162, higher than the genius physicists Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.
A prodigy born in Veracruz. Recently, I moved to Tijuana to speak about the black hole at a seminar for children organized by the Institute of Arts & Culture.
"I was surprised that such a young girl was more knowledgeable than adults. She also studied two disciplines at university," said Karen Alonso, one of the attendees.
With outstanding intelligence, Adhara was invited to study astronomy at the University of Arizona (USA), once visited NASA's Johnson Space Center in Texas.
"I have to stay there for 3 months to learn and get used to listening and speaking English , " Adhara said.
Especially, at 3 years old, Adhara Pérez Sánchez was diagnosed with autism. Therefore, the prodigy is currently working on creating devices to support autistic children.
"I am creating a bracelet that can measure a child's emotions. That way, parents will find out how their children are feeling through software on their phones, tablets or computers," Adhara explained.
Not stopping there, "Little Einstein" also published the book. I hope I can work at NASA and travel to Mars.
Despite her outstanding intelligence, Adhara Pérez Sánchez experienced an unhappy childhood. I have Asperger's syndrome, experiencing disadvantages in my life due to poor, clumsy communication. Because of that, Adhara was bullied by her classmates, even locked her in a closet. The relationship with the teacher is also not very good.
"The teacher once sent me messages, telling me about girls falling asleep in the classroom. I had to watch her play in the little house. Then they locked the door, locked the kid in there and started calling her "You don't want your kids to suffer like that. She also expressed she doesn't want to go to school," her mother Nanelly Sanchez said.
Following the advice of a psychologist, she sends her children to the Talent Attention Center (CEDAT). All the teachers are very good, willing to support Adhara because they know you belong there.
Unfortunately, due to limited family finances, Adhara was unable to continue her studies. Mexico has no public school for talented children.
After all, Adhara Pérez Sánchez still managed to overcome. My book is entitled "Don't give up" as a message to yourself and others in similar situations.
"Never give up. If you don't like your current home, plan to move to your preferred place," said the 8-year-old prodigy.
