Mexican 13-Year-Old is Youngest Psychologist in the World, Available for Tutoring

What were you doing when you were 13 years old? Chances are, if you were like any of us, you were probably playing outside with all your vecinos until your ma’ yelled from the kitchen window, “¡¿Ya hiciste la tarea?!” You were in junior high and felt awkward AF.

But 13-year-old Dafne Almazán is not like any of us. She’s the youngest psychologist in the world. Say whaaaat? That’s right, Dafne is from México and she just graduated with a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education (ITESM) in Mexico City. She won’t be listening to your problems any time soon, though, she’s busy getting her master’s degree, practicing tae kwon do, playing the piano and tutoring kids. You know, NBD.

And Almazán is not the only one with the smarts in her family, who, btw, learned to read and write at age 2, she’s actually the youngest prodigy of three. Wonder what they talk about over family dinners?

“I just try to be the best at everything,” she tells Fox News Latino. “I want to get the most out of myself.”

That might be an understatement.

If you want to know how many other ways Almazán kicks ass, read the full article here.

Fighter Ronda Rousey Will Battle Body Image in Hollywood


Fighter Ronda Rousey Will Battle Body Image in Hollywood

Ronda Rousey will continue her successful UFC championship fighting career…but this time she will battle body image as an actress in Hollywood.

Rousey is 5 feet 7 tall. She feels attractive weighing in at 148.  And she often poses nude or with little clothes on for magazines like Sports Illustrated and Maxim because, as she told The New York Times, she wants “to embrace the body that used to embarrass her.”

But there’s more to her new career than just acting and posing for magazines: “If I can represent that body type of women that isn’t represented so much in media, then I’d be happy to do that,” Rousey says. “When women say that going on publications directed at men is somehow demeaning, I don’t think that’s true. I think that’s one really effective way to change the societal standard women are held to.”
