Are you smarter than a 3 year old? Not this one! Meet Alexis Martin, one of the world’s youngest geniuses!
Alexis is a 3 year old pre-schooler from Arizona with an IQ over 160, which is the same as Albert Einstein’s was!
The average person’s IQ is around 100 and doctors say that Alexis’ IQ is so high that they can’t calculate the exact score.
Alexis learnt to read at the age of 2 and now reads at a fifth grade level. She has also taught herself to speak Spanish using her parents’ iPad and can name and locate every continent and country capital in the world.
Alexis is a member of the exclusive Mensa club which accepts members with an IQ within the top two per cent in the world. Alexis is one of the youngest members the club has ever had.
It was first discovered that Alexis was special when she began reciting full bed time stories word for word at the 12-18 months old.
Alexis’ brilliant mind does pose some challenges though, her parents trying to find the best way to school her so she will be challenged but also allow her to make friends her own age.
No matter where Alexis ends up though, the future looks bright for this very talented little girl!
