Indo-Americans are making their mark in the US in many fields so far. Even children of Indian origin proving their skill and talent from childhood. Now in the row, a 11 year old Indian-American girl Natasha Peri has been judged as one of the brightest students in the world by a top US University for her exceptional performance in the  Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) and American College Testing (ACT) standardised tests.

Natasha Peri, a student at Thelma L Sandmeier Elementary School in New Jersey, has also been honoured in a similar assessment taken as part of the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth Talent (CTY) Search, a statement said.  

She was one of nearly 19,000 students from 84 countries who joined CTY in the 2020-21 Talent Search year. She was in Grade 5 when she took this test.  Her results in the verbal and quantitative sections levelled with the 90th percentile of advanced Grade 8 performance. She made the cut for Johns Hopkins CTY High Honors Awards.

We are thrilled to celebrate these students. In a year that was anything but ordinary, their love of learning shined through, and we are excited to help cultivate their growth as scholars and citizens throughout high school, college, and beyond," Virginia Roach, CTY's executive director, said in a statement.

Both the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) and American College Testing (ACT) are standardised tests that many colleges use to determine whether to accept a student for admission. CTY uses above-grade-level testing to identify advanced students from around the world and provide a clear picture of their true academic abilities.
