In a remarkable display of intellect, 6-year-old Declan Lopez, a kindergartner from New Jersey, has become a member of Mensa, a prestigious society reserved for individuals with exceptional IQ levels.
Boasting an impressive IQ of 138, Declan’s intellectual prowess places her in the company of the brightest minds, including the legendary physicist Albert Einstein.
While Einstein never took an IQ test, historians estimate his IQ to be around 160 based on his records.
Declan’s IQ of 138 is considered at the genius level, particularly noteworthy for her age. Mensa, a global high-IQ society, admits individuals who score at the 98th percentile or higher on a standardized IQ test.
With more than 50,000 members, American Mensa has highlighted its Young Mensans segment as its fastest-growing.
One standout feature that sets Declan apart is her extraordinary reading ability, already at a third or fourth-grade level.
While her school provides a coding game once a week to stimulate her intellect, Meachel Lopez emphasized that she wants Declan to enjoy her childhood.
Recalling a moment at the airport, Meachel Lopez shared, “We were on a trip in the airport, and she just started to count in Mandarin.”
Declan’s journey into Mensa at such a young age reflects not only her remarkable abilities but also the ongoing exploration of intelligence and potential in individuals of all ages.
