PHOENIX (Reuters) – She’s not even in kindergarten yet, but a 3-year-old Arizona girl has been accepted into an exclusive global society known for its brain power.

With an IQ above 160, Alexis Martin, of suburban Queen Creek, is now the youngest member in the Arizona chapter of Mensa. Alexis, who reads at a fifth-grade level and taught herself Spanish using her parents’ iPad, qualified by scoring among the top 2 percent of the general population on a standardized intelligence test, her father said.

Alexis is one of 3,300 Mensa members under the age of 18 in the U.S., with another 56,000 adults belonging to the group nationwide, a spokeswoman for the organization said. She is the youngest person to ever be accepted from Arizona.
