At the age of 13, Mexican-born teenager Dafne Almazán had already become the youngest psychologist in the world. That alone would give you a reason to pause and marvel at her accomplishments. However, Almazán has made history once again for her academic accomplishments. She is set to become the first person under 18 years old to be enrolled in a post-graduate degree at Harvard University in the last 100 years. She will be pursuing a masters degree in math education and is expected to finish her studies at Harvard after just one year.

 

Almazán is starting her next chapter to what has already been an incredible educational journey.

Her journey to Harvard began at a very young age. By age six, she learned how to read and write, at 10 she completed high school and after three years at the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education (ITESM) she had a degree in psychology, which made her the youngest psychologist in the world.

Almazán is considered gifted and never studied in a traditional classroom. Her father, Asdrubal Almazán , who is a doctor, followed the “radical acceleration” method which means letting the child learn without any restrictions. This method helped Dafne reach her full potential and is credited with much of her intellectual successes.

EB-5 Program Update:

The EB-5 Program has lapsed. The US Congress is discussing the legislation that authorizes the program while USCIS reviews the regulations and policies for filing. Because of the recent court ruling that reversed the 2019 Modernization regulations, the investment level has shifted temporarily from $900,000 back to $500,000.

If the program is reauthorized before the regulations are updated, there may be another window of opportunity to file at $500,000.

LCR expects the program to be reauthorized in February 2022, and continues to work with international families that want to explore alternative residency options.
