Anala Beevers becomes MENSA member at 4

By GABRIELLE LEVY, UPI.com   |   July 30, 2013 at 3:05 PM   |   Comments

July 30 (UPI) -- To call 4-year-old Anala Beevers precocious might be something of an understatement.

Anala, who hails from New Orleans, boasts an IQ of 145 and an invitation to join MENSA, the international organization for people who score in the 98th percentile on intelligence tests.

Her favorite toy isn't a doll, but a map of the U.S. -- she already knows the location and capital of every state. She also knew the alphabet at just four months old, and had learned numbers in Spanish by 1 1/2.

"She's a handful," her dad, Landon Beevers said. "She needs a reality show. She keeps us on our toes."

Anala says she wants to be a nurse when she grows up.
