A girl named Lauren Marbe from Loughton, Essex is tearing down stereotypes and breaking records. Lauren is only 16- years-old, blonde, and is a girl with an IQ of 161. Her teachers, and the rest of the world, are shocked because that is actually higher than Einstein’s IQ. Not only are people in awe that Lauren’s IQ is higher than Einstein’s, but they are even more surprised because of Lauren's appearance.
This definitely goes to show that just because you care about your appearance doesn’t mean you can’t be a genius too! According to swns.com Lauren is elated to be knocking down those stereotypes. She admits to loving makeup, getting her nails and hair done, and likes to go out.
“My teachers knew I was quite clever because of my grades but they had always thought I was blonde and a bit ditzy. Now they keep saying ‘I didn’t realize you were that clever’.” So what does a girl with an IQ of 161 do now that everyone knows she’s a genius? She goes to school of course. Lauren Marbe plans on studying architecture at the University of Cambridge.
