3-year-old joins Mensa

Not every 3-year-old dreams about becoming a scientist.

But 3-year-old Selena Janik of Anderson County, Tennessee does. Janik has displayed superior intelligence in her three short years of existence and has even joined the elite high IQ society, Mensa.

WBIR TV 10 reports that Janik’s parents knew that their daughter was special from the moment she was born and as time went by, they noticed that she showed advanced reading and counting skills so they decided get her IQ evaluated by the family’s local school system. Her intelligence test score was 135 on a composite scale and so high that it placed her IQ in the top 1% of the population.

Shortly after, Janik's father got a phone call that said his daughter had been accepted into Mensa. Membership in Mensa is reserved for people with IQ scores in the top 2%.

The future is bright for the young genius. Janik's mother said, "She told me the other day she said, 'Mommy what are the people who like molecules?' And I said, 'You mean a scientist?' She said, "Yes. I want to be a scientist when I grow up.'"

Her father added, "I just want her to be happy whatever path she chooses."
