Genius Boy, 7, With an Astonishing IQ

Meet Leo Gomez-Franqueira, a remarkable seven-year-old boy who is astounding psychologists with his incredible abilities.

Leo, who lives in Wimbledon with his parents, possesses a unique talent that sets him apart from his peers. He can fluently speak five languages and has an IQ that surpasses that of Albert Einstein himself.

Leo’s parents first noticed his remarkable abilities when he started speaking at a mere three months old, saying “papa.” To their amazement, he sprouted his first tooth at the same age and was able to stand unaided by six months old. By the time Leo reached 11 months, he had already mastered all the letters of the alphabet and could identify flags from around the world.

According to his mother, Teresa, Leo has always possessed an exceptional gift. She describes him as not being a typical baby, as he quickly surpassed developmental milestones at an astonishing rate. Teresa explains, “It’s like having three kids in one. He needs constant stimulation and is always seeking new challenges.”

Realizing Leo’s exceptional abilities, his parents, Teresa and Inaki San Pedro, who are originally from Spain, opted to have him assessed by a psychologist when he turned two. The results were mind-blowing – Leo’s IQ was higher than that of both Einstein and Stephen Hawking, placing him in the top two percent of the population. As a result, he was invited to join Mensa, the renowned high IQ society, and became their youngest member at the tender age of two.

Leo’s linguistic skills are nothing short of astonishing. By age one, he could already communicate in four different languages fluently. Not only that, but he also excels in playing multiple instruments, including the cello. For a gifted child like Leo, it is crucial to have them evaluated as early as possible to provide the necessary support and guidance. Teresa emphasizes, “We knew Leo was different when he could identify all the flags in the world at such a young age.”

However, raising a gifted seven-year-old comes with its own unique challenges. “The biggest thing is time,” says Teresa. “You constantly have to keep him engaged and entertained. My husband takes charge of Leo’s activities, ensuring he remains motivated and continually challenged.”

Despite being highly intelligent, Leo remains a normal seven-year-old, cherishing his childhood moments. He adores playing games on his iPad or Nintendo Wii with his dad and indulges in sports like football, golf, tennis, and Kung-Fu. Teresa affirms, “Even though he’s incredibly intelligent, Leo is still just a child. He loves spending time with his friends and enjoys the simple joys of childhood.”

Though intellectually advanced for his age, Leo is still exploring the world, discovering his passions and interests. For his mother, what matters most is that Leo finds happiness and pursues what he loves. She says, “The most important thing for us is that he is happy and discovers what he truly enjoys. While he learns new things quickly, hard work will always be necessary to reach his goals.”

Looking ahead, Teresa has a simple wish for Leo’s future. She hopes that he will find his true passion and work hard to achieve his dreams. She explains, “Being gifted and a hard worker, you will reach the stars.” As for Leo, he reveals his love for everything, including football, school, and playing games. When asked which character he would want to portray in a movie, Leo enthusiastically responds, “I would be Harry Potter!”
