Toddler with an IQ of 146 Becomes American Mensa’s Youngest Member

Kashe Quest, a California native, has an IQ of 146 and was accepted as a member of the high-IQ society. The 2-year-old girl has just made history as the youngest member of American Mensa. 

According to Healthline, the average intelligence quotient score in the U.S. is between 85 and 115. The toddler’s achievement is undoubtedly impressive. Mensa only admits people who have an IQ score that belongs to the top 2% of a population.

“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,” Mitchell added.

Kashe, nearing the age of 3, has made several academic strides that are not common to children her age. She can identify all 50 U.S. states by shape, count to 100, and identify elements on the periodic table. In addition to learning English and Spanish, her communication abilities are also advanced, with 50 sign languages memorized so far.

“We started to notice her memory was really great. She just picked up things really fast, and she was really interested in learning,” said Kashe’s mother Sukhjit Athwal. “At about 17, 18 months, she had recognized all the alphabet, numbers, colors, and shapes.”

However, Kashe exhibits behavioral similarities with other toddlers her age, which includes negotiations and tantrums. According to her mother, the main difference is that Kashe can understand what is being told to her more so than her young peers.
