4-Year-Old ‘Genius’ Anala Beevers Invited to Join Mensa
A 4-year-old New Orleans girl who learned the alphabet by the time she was four months old has been invited to join Mensa, the world’s premier high IQ society.
Anala Beevers, who according to Mail Online has an IQ of 145– placing her in the top 1 percent of all humans– not only learned her ABCs by the age of four months, she also mastered counting in Spanish by the time she was a year and a half old and can name the planets, dinosaurs and the capitals of many US states and foreign countries.
AOL reports Anala believes she is smarter than her parents, an assertion they do not refute.
“She keeps us on our toes,” dad Landon Beevers said. “She deserves a reality show.” Landon adds that Anala is a “handful.” Mom Sabrina says Anala is always correcting their grammar.
Anala, who wants to be a nurse when she grows up, is well aware of her gifted mind. When People magazine asked her how smart she is, she replied “really smart.”
While Anala is certainly among the younger individuals ever to receive an invitation to join Mensa, she is not the youngest. Just last month, 2-year-old Adam Kirby of London, England, who potty trained himself at age 23 months after reading a book on the subject, made international headlines when he became the youngest boy ever to join Mensa. Another 2-year-old, American Emmelyn Roettger, joined last year.
