The Knyazev sisters, Diana and Angela, are considered the last child prodigies of the USSR. The girls were born in 1986/87. Their parents were educators. And the girls' mother defended her doctoral thesis on how to raise gifted children. And of course she tried her method on her own children. And her husband actively helped her in this. It is noteworthy that many of the prodigies of that time had a sad end, they completely surrendered themselves to teachings and knowledge, and as a result received a mental deviation. However, the girls' parents did everything to prevent their studies from ruining them. The learning process has always been accompanied by games, walks, and entertainment. Thanks to this, the girls had a normal childhood.

Girls already at 3-4 years old knew how to read. They went to school only at the beginning, then transferred to home schooling. The school could not accommodate the girls, they were bored. The girls passed exams and graduated from school at the age of 11, and then entered the Faculty of International Economic Relations. The girls graduated from the university in three years, instead of the prescribed five. Then the girls received legal education. But they didn't want to stop there. Therefore, the girls went to America, where they received a master's degree at only 15-16 years old. After that they gave lectures at one of the US universities.
