Three year old girl is youngest member of Mensa

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

A toddler from Arizona is the newest member of Mensa.

3 year old Alexis Martin is the youngest member ever accepted into the prestigious club.

Mensa is the largest and oldest high IQ society.

The average person has an IQ of 100.

Alexis scored above 160, putting her in the category with geniuses like Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking and Bill Gates.

Her proud dad Ian Martin says "probably 12 to 18 months or so we'd be driving around in the car and she would recite her bedtime stories from the night before. I mean we're talking 20 to 25 page books, she would recite them from the night before but not just recite them, recite them exactly."

Doctors say Alexis tested so high, they couldn't calculate her exact IQ score.

The whiz kid is currently reading books at a 5th grade level and even taught herself Spanish on her parents' I-Pad.
