4-Year Old With IQ of 145 Becomes Mensa's Newest Member

Anala Beevers is 4 and smarter than you.

Anala — who learned the alphabet when she was only 4 months old, her parents say  has an IQ over 145. The New Orleans toddler recently was invited to join Mensa, the high-IQ society for people who score at the 98th percentile or higher on the standardized intelligence test. Anala is in the 99th percentile.

Anala loves geography, knows the location of every U.S. state and the names of their capitals. She even carries a map of America everywhere she goes. 

"She needs a reality show," her father, Landon Beevers, told People magazine. "She keeps us on our toes."

She also knows she's smart.

"Really smart," Anala says.

Her mother, Sabrina Beevers, says Anala is constantly correcting the family's grammar.

"She's a handful," Landon Beevers said. "I'll tell you, she's a handful."

Anala is not the youngest Mensa member. In June, Adam Kirby, a 2-year-old from London, became the youngest boy ever to join Mensa, according to the Digital Journal. Emmelyn Roettger, a 2-year-old from Washington, D.C., joined last year, becoming the youngest U.S. member.
