5 Mensa Members Under 5 (Spoiler: They’re All Girls)

by Andrea Stopa

How many states do you know? How about capitals? How about global capitals? Do you know what SCUBA stands for without sprinting to Google?

This is not a 5th grade drill to shame you – it’s to emphasize how smart these little geniuses are. After coming across a video of Anala Beevers, a Mensa Member at age 4, with an  IQ in the top 1% of the human population, I was a little curious about other mini Mensa members. 

Apparently, being young and very intelligent is not a direct indication of the child’s future – aka they can grow up and to be very normal people, which makes the Mensa induction at such a young age seem a little premature, but it’s still fascinating to see how much info these little kiddies know at such a young age.

Here are 5 Mensa members under 5 (spoiler) that are all girls. 

Anala Beevers, 4 years old



Heidi Hankins, 4 years old


Selena Jenkins, 3 years old 

Elise Tan-Roberts 2 years old

Emmelyn Roettger, 2 years old
