Mexico’s Child Geniuses

Follow by Email
Dafne Almazán is not your average 16-year-old. When she’s not studying, she plays the piano and teaches Mandarin to other children. Oh, and did we mention that at just 13 years old she became the world’s youngest psychologist? And, as if that wasn’t quite enough, she is currently completing her doctorate in law. Dafne is impressive, but she’s not alone. According to a recent study, Mexico is home to one million gifted children, but due to limited resources, only four percent are able to reach their full potential. Dafne is trying to change that. By teaching gifted kids at Mexico's Centro de Atención al Talento (CEDAT), she is working to make certain that talent doesn't go untapped.
