Meet Dafne Almazán Anaya of Monterrey, Mexico. She’s just your typical 10-year-old kid – sweet, active, and playful. But what’s so especial about her? At just 10 years of age, she is Mexico’s youngest college student, attending Instituto Tecnológico de Monterrey (Monterrey Institute of Technology), studying for a degree in psychology. Though she stated primary (elementary) school at age 6, in just that short four years, she’s made it through middle and high school. Is she the only one in her family? Nope. Older sister, Delanie, 14, is also in the Monterrey Institute of Technology, studying psychology along with Dafne and oldest brother, Andrew, 18, has his degree in psychology and is not studying to become a doctor. And there’s no sibling rivalry – all three of the gifted youth get along very well. In fact, Dafne has been following her sister Delanie’s example ever since she was three!
But at the end of the day, she’s still a kid, according to her father, Asdrubal Almazán. Those she is in her studies a lot, she’ll still act like a typical 10-year-old.
Being Mexico’s youngest college student has even caught the eye of Mexican news station FOROtv. You can see the news piece below (in Spanish).
