As noted at Telegraph on Tuesday, February 12, 2013, Lauren Marbe is a daughter of a black cab driver, but is officially smarter than Albert Einstein, Professor Stephen Hawking, and Bill Gates, who all of them having the same IQ of 160. However, Marbe is noted to be living just like any ordinary teenage girl.
“It was such an achievement and I got a bit tearful to tell you the truth.” Lauren Marbe was quoted in the paper, whose father David, 45, and Sue Marbe, 45, notably surprised with the result. But they emphasized that they are not forcing their daughter to be a stereotype-genius student, despite having an IQ of 161.
“I am blonde, I do wear make-up, and I do go out. I love my fake tan and fake nails as well so I guess I am a bit of an Essex girl in that sense. I watch Towie and I love the program, it’s addictive but now most people do seem to think that’s what everyone in Essex is like.” Ms. Marbe added.
“I love living in Essex and I’m glad that I might be able to show people that we aren’t all ditzy and blonde.” The genius teen explained further, noting that she plans to take A-Levels in Art, Physics, and Math if she pass the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE), an academic qualification in England‘s secondary schools.
And although Lauren also loves to take up an Architecture degree at the University of Cambridge, she admitted that she would also like to be a professional singer and dancer someday. Her parents, despite being proud to have a genius daughter, said they will respect whatever career path she will choose.
