We come across several cases of child prodigies taking science to another level or becoming distinguished in one or other field. Lydia Sebastian, the 12-year-old girl, is no exception. She has outwitted geniuses Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking to gain a perfect score in a Mensa IQ test.
The test consisted of 150 questions, with the maximum score for those less than 18 years of age being 162. The girl outshone all competitors scoring the perfect 162.
The paper challenged her language and logical skills including analogies and definitions. Lydia is about to go into her second year at Colchester County High School for Girls.
Lydia Sebastian was born to an Indian man hailing from Kerala, Arun Sebastian who works as a radiologist at Colchester General Hospital. Her mother Erika Kottiath who works as an associate director with Barclays Bank encouraged the little genius to take the test.  Her parents proudly recall that she was only six months old when she started speaking and has been playing the violin since was 4 years old. Wow, what a brilliant kid!.
As per the website Mirror, Arun Sebastian said, “When I heard she had the maximum possible mark, I was overwhelmed and so was my wife.”
She is known to be the biggest fan of Harry Potter and has read the seven series book three times. Lysa has expressed her desire to make a career in mathematics. Going by present statistics where she surpassed everyone, one has no doubt that she will make a career in mathematics.
