A Two-Year-Old Just Became Youngest Mensa Member Ever
The youngest member in Mensa history is two years old and has an IQ of 146.
At two years old, most toddlers are still figuring out the basics of walking, speaking, and potty training. But not Kashe Quest, who just made history by becoming the youngest member ever to be accepted into Mensa at two years old.
According to Fox 11 Los Angeles, Quest has an IQ of 146 and she can count to 100, identify all 50 states by shape, and is already learning Spanish, English, and sign language. Kashe’s mother Sukhjit Athwal said that she started to notice her daughter’s memory was great early on and by 18 months, “she had recognized all the alphabet, numbers, colors, and shapes.”
“Kashe is a remarkable girl, and what may be rare here is that Kashe’s gifts have been recognized so early in life. Her parents will be able to help her with some of the unique challenges gifted youth encounter,” American Mensa’s Executive Director Trevor Mitchell told Fox News via email. “Being the smartest person in the room isn’t always easy, and Mensa understands the importance of being challenged by others, of having our potential recognized, and of celebrating achievements.”
