Einstein, for example, had an IQ of 160.

Kashe Quest, a two-year-old from Los Angeles, California, has been welcomed to Mensa. Mensa is the largest and oldest high IQ society in the world.

The IQ of this little kid is 146. The average IQ of an adult in the United States is 100. Therefore he was welcomed to the organization as the youngest member of it.

Kashe’s mother, Sukhjit Athwal, was the first to notice her child’s extraordinary memorization skills. Kashe was always eager to learn and was a quick learner. She memorized the whole alphabet and learned how to count when she was only 18 months old.

“On Saturdays, she wakes up early in the morning and tells us that she wants to learn about a particular subject, so we help her do it,” her father, Devon Quest, explained.

During Kashe’s 18-month appointment, her pediatrician remarked how unique she was. She is a gifted child. She is still only two years old, but she already knows more than 50 signs of sign language, and she can also recognize all 50 states simply by looking at their shape and position on a map. She can name all elements of the periodic table only by looking at the symbols, which is remarkable.

The little girl started reading when she was only one and a half years old, and now she reads complete phrases without hesitation.

Sukhjit explained, “Anyway, she’s still a baby. She’s still a typical two-year-old, with outbursts, disagreements, and almost everything else. The one thing different we experience is communicating with her because she understands what we say pretty quickly.”

However, Sukhjit and Devon just want their kid to have a good time growing up. ” We don’t put any pressure on her shoulders. We want her to enjoy her childhood.”

Sukhjit’s academic and early education background allows her to adjust and comprehend her toddler’s learning curve, helping her personalize Kashe’s education to her talents and interests.

“Her interests depend on her mood and the day she’s having. We don’t force her but help her do things she’s interested in,” Sukhjit added.

Kashe’s brilliant IQ has brought her the chance to join the Mensans. The toddler is interested in learning new languages too. She is studying Spanish at the moment.

Trevor Mitchell, the executive director of American Mensa, issued an official statement in which he said, “Kashe is an outstanding asset to American Mensa. We are honored to have her and to be able to assist her and her guardians in overcoming the specific hurdles that talented children face.”

Any person who would like to join the Mensa should gain a score of 132 or more on the Stanford–Binetare IQ test, which puts that person in the top 2% of the overall population.

American Mensa has more than 50 000 members, including engineers, teachers, actors, students, and many other professionals from different fields. They range from 2 to 102 in age.
