Mensa is the largest and oldest high IQ society in the world. It was founded in Oxford in 1946 by Roland Berrill, a barrister, and Dr Lance Ware, a scientist and lawyer.
Parents Anira and Mohd, from Durham, both engineers, say that they never expected their son to show signs of such incredible intellect at such a young age. They thought it was normal.
‘We didn’t have much experience, so we just thought that’s how kids were,’ Anira said. ‘It was only when he started going to nursery, we were told he is more advanced than other children, then we realised he was special.
‘By the time he was in nursery, he could read the whole of some of his favourite storybooks.’
After realising that at the age of two Haryz could remember and recite entire stories, his parents set up a YouTube channel called Little Haryz, so other children could watch and be encouraged.
The family are glad that Haryz has been accepted into Mensa, and they hope this is the first step in his journey towards achieving incredible things.
Haryz is going to be the youngest member of this highly exclusive society.
