We all remember Adhara Maite Pérez, the CDMX genius girl known for having an IQ higher than Albert Einstein and Stepehen Hawking.
Adhara is currently studying two degrees, Industrial Engineering in Mathematics at UNITEC and Systems Engineering at CNCI; both online.
However, this 11-year-old girl’s biggest dream is to be an astronaut; dream that is getting closer to being fulfilled every day.
And it is that Adhara has been accepted to be part of the International Air and Space Program 2021 (IASP) of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration of the United States (NASA).
Adhara Pérez asks Guillermo del Toro for help
On his Instagram account he shared the acceptance letter to the IASP in which he explains what this 5-day program is about:
“Participants will interact with experts through courses and online work.
The project will end with a visit to the United States Space and Rocket Center in the spring of 2021, where students will present their projects to a panel of experts and hear presentations from STEM and aerospace engineering. “
But going to Alabama, the headquarters of the IASP, is a very expensive trip for Adhara and her family, which is why in the same publication, the minor requested Guillermo del Toro’s help to make her dream come true.
“Mr. Guillermo del Toro, I am Adhara Maite, I study two engineering studies at the CNCI school, I was invited to Alabama representing Mexico, I dream of being an astronaut.”
So far Del Toro has not responded to the girl’s request, but he has such a good heart that we do not doubt that he will.
After all, this would not be the first time that the Mexican director gave of his purse to help young Mexicans meet their goals.
In 2019, the filmmaker paid for the plane tickets for the Mexican math team to represent our country at the International Mathematics Competition in South Africa.
