Indian-American Student Makes It To World’s Brightest List

| Updated: February 9, 2023 12:15

Indian-American girl, Natasha Perianayagam has been named to the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth’s list of the world’s brightest students,  based on the results of above-grade-level tests of over 15,000 students across 76 countries.

For the second consecutive year in a row, Natasha Perianayagam has been named to the list of the world’s brightest students. She is 13 years old and attends Florence M Gaudineer Middle School in New Jersey, USA.

She also took the Johns Hopkins Center For Talented Youth (CTY) test in the spring of 2021 when she was in grade 5. Her verbal and quantitative results were in the 90th percentile of advanced Grade 8 performance, propelling her to the honours list that year.

This year, she was recognised for her outstanding performance on the SAT, ACT, School and College Ability Test, or similar assessment administered as part of the CTY Talent Search, according to a press release issued by the university on Monday.

In her spare time, Perianayagam, whose parents are from Chennai, enjoys jotting down and reading JRR Tolkien’s novels.

CTY used above-grade-level testing to identify advanced students from around the world and provide a clear picture of their academic abilities.

 Dr. Amy Shelton, CTY’s executive director said that “This is not just recognition of our students’ success on one test, but a salute to their love of discovery and learning, and all the knowledge they have accumulated in their young lives so far, adding she said it is exciting to think about all the ways in which they will use that potential to discover their passions, engage in rewarding and enriching experiences, and achieve remarkable things — in their communities and in the world.”
