Similar in IQ to Albert Einstein, 10-year-old enters Harvard University

He’s only 10-years old but thanks to an IQ similar to Albert Einstein’s, Luis Roberto Ramirez will begin the next school year studying applied quantum physics at Harvard University.

“My dream is to create a company and sell my inventions,” the boy said on a video aired by the Michoacan Radio and Television System.

Ramirez, who lives in Zamora, Michoacan, taught himself English at 5 and is now learning to speak French and Chinese.

He was identified as highly gifted just two years ago when his parents began to see he had problems relating to other children, and that his priorities and tastes were unlike anything that might be expected of a kid his age.

It was then he was determined to have an IQ of between 152 and 160, around Einstein’s level.

“It makes us very proud but it’s also a big responsibility,” his father, Roberto Ramirez, said.
