Chandler Hughes, a six-year-old from Humble, Texas, is regarded as one of the smartest kids in the state—if not the entire nation. Intending to become a doctor in the future, Hughes has joined the prestigious Mensa Society.
The young prodigy told KPRC, “A medical doctor because I want to help people when they are sick.”
His father disclosed, “It started early, started reading at one year, nine months.”
He added that although his son is in a wonderful setting where both his instructors and peers support him, he still wants to work on his sociability because Hughes is an intellectual.
“My son was able to join Mensa, which is a society for people with high IQs. You have to be in the top 2% worldwide. He joins a special fraternity of people who are essentially geniuses. He was in pre-kindergarten but finished on a second-grade reading level, a second-grade math level. And so now he’s at The Imani School, and he’s in first grade, but he should be in kindergarten,” the proud dad added.
The Mensa Society boasts around 150,000 members of all ages. According to the organization’s website, the organization offers its members a variety of fascinating opportunities for intellectual, cultural, and social contact.
