14 year old Jacob Barnett, was diagnosed with moderate to severe autism, when he was two years old. Doctor’s told his parents that the he would likely never talk or read and would probably be forever unable to independently manage basic daily activities like tying his shoe laces.
But they were sorely, extraordinarily mistaken.
Now fourteen, he is a Master’s student and hopes to earn a Ph.D in quantum physics. He has an IQ of 170 and is tipped to one day win the Nobel Prize. He enrolled at the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) at the age of ten. He tutors other students in subjects like calculus and is a published scientific researcher, has an IQ believed to be higher than Albert Einstein, frequently tops his class and believes that he may one day disprove Einstein’s theory of Relativity. (E=mc squared).
He has Asperger’s Syndrome and is an entrepreneur and aspiring author. He runs a charity called Jacob’s Place along with his family, for kids on the spectrum and has used his story to raise awareness and dispel myths about autism.
His mother, Kristine Barnett had her memoir about her family’s experience with autism released in April. It is titled “The Spark: A Mother’s Story of Nurturing Genius”. A movie deal is said to be in the works.
Are you having problems in your life, your studies, your place of work, your business, your relationship or marriage? You can turn your situation around when you face and focus on how you can solve your problem yourself. People might say your gonna be of no good. Don’t listen to them. You are the architect of your own destiny. Ever watched the movie, “The Beautiful Mind”, by Russell Crowe? This is a schizophreniac, who imagines things. Yet he was a genius in quantum physics as well and he later won the Nobel Prize. You need to have an individual that supports and believes in you and who will never give up on you. You can’t do it alone. Don’t believe them when they say you are cursed. You are not cursed. Believe in yourself and God.
