This little tike is just 2-years-old!
Kashe Quest from Los Angeles is the youngest member of American Mensa—the world's largest and oldest high IQ organization. Kashe is only 2-years-old, soon turning 3. She has an IQ of 146, while an average American has an IQ of 100.
The little girl can identify all 50 American states in the map from their shape, recognize elements from the Periodic Table, count up to 100, and has started reading!
Kashe's parents Sukhjit Athwal and Devon Quest said their daughter is also learning Spanish and sign language. "We started to notice her memory was really great. She just picked up things really fast and she was really interested in learning. At about 17, 18 months, she had recognized all the alphabet, numbers, colors, and shapes," said Sukhjit.
Despite being an exceptionally bright child, Kashe is still in her toddler phase, and her parents do not intend to put her under any competitive pressure. "At the end of the day, she's in that toddler stage. So she very much is still a normal two-year-old where we have negotiations, we have tantrums, we have everything and it's different because the way we communicate with her, it has to be different because she's able to understand just a little bit more," said Sukhjit.

It is better when Kashe leads the way in learning, believe Sukhjit and Devon. "She'll wake up on a Saturday and say, 'I wanna do elements,' or, 'I wanna do states,' so whenever she's leaning into it, we're just there to support her," Quest told in a statement.
Sukhjit has a background in education and childhood development and wants to help Kashe articulate her interests. Mensa's youngest member is gifted, but Sukhjit is not ready to push her daughter to grow up too fast.
