Recently, the Mensa organization in the US has added an exceptional new member, Kashe Quest. She is only 2 years old, but she has a genius IQ of 146. With this IQ, Kashe Quest from California became the youngest member of the Mensa organization, a group of exceptionally brilliant people in America.
American Mensa claims to have more than 50,000 members between the ages of 2 and 102. Engineers, housewives, teachers, actors, and students are members of this group.
According to footage seen on Good Day LA, Kashe demonstrated its abilities by correctly identifying the Phosphorus and Mississippi state ingredients on the memory card.
According to the Mensa website, one of their members must have an IQ of at least 132 on the Stanford—Binetare IQ test, and these people are among the top 2% of the population. According to Athwal, Kashe’s IQ is 146, much higher than the average American IQ of around 98.
Trevor Mitchell, chief executive officer of American Mensa, said, “Kashe is certainly a notable addition to American Mensa.”
While most normal kids start learning to read at the age of 5 and then learn a foreign language, Kashe Quest has an amazing breakthrough. She learned to read at the age of 1.5, speak Spanish, and can name all 50 states on the map, Sukhjit Athwal, Kashe’s mother, told KTTV on Tuesday, May 25.
Athwal also added: “We started to realize how good Kashe’s memory is. She absorbs new information quite quickly and is eager to learn. She understood all the alphabets, numbers, colors and forms when she was about 17, 18 months old.”
“I think one of the biggest things for me and [my] daughter is making sure she has a good childhood and that we don’t force anything on her,” Kashe’s mother said. “We’re going at her pace and we want to make sure she stays young for as long as possible.”
More and more children have special abilities, but sometimes it is troublesome for children when daily life is affected too much in terms of time or learning. Fortunately, Kashe’s mother had a straightforward thought so that Kashe could have a childhood like many other children. That’s good for Kashe!
