IQ is the way of judgement of your thoughts and reasoning and it is said that Mensa score toppers are exceptionally brainy people. There is an eleven year old girl Saanya Verma, who has received the highest possible scores in both Mensa IQ tests. She is among the elite one percent people across the world who have scored so well in Mensa.
It is enticing to know the story of this brilliant girl so we have conducted an interview of Saanya Verma and got to know interesting facts about her. The reason she took this examination was a debate with her father, does intelligence bank on the age?Â No, it doesn't, she proved it wrong as the intelligence totally depends on us, by racking up topmostÂ scores of 162 in an IQ test of Mensa at such a small age proved it. The question is how these kids develop good IQ? Is it inherent? According to Saanya's day to day activities the recreational activities and family environment play a crucial role in developing IQ. The activities which help Saanya in developing IQ are playing mental exercise games like chess, reading novels like The Hunger Games Series, which is about healing the pain of poor with money. These activities are self explanatory about Saanya's mentality and thought of good deeds.
Children at age of eleven love to play with robots, but Saanya make the robots herself and enjoys studying on sensors and Ardiuno. She says thatÂ
"I have started developing robots which can do some basic tasks such as follow a line, keep within a boundary, solve a maze etc. Arduino is a more recent thing I have started working on. I am in the initial stages where I look at inputs from various sensors such as light sensors, heat sensor etc. and provide outputs to display screens and motors."
There are parents who think studying books 24*7 will develop the brain of their children, but Saanya clearly mentioned that she studies not more than 4 hours a day. She devotes time in learning instruments, watching documentaries and solving riddles. She plays Tennis, Chess, Singing, Piano, Lacrosse andÂ love to watch Gravity Falls and Star Wars. At this age, she doesn't think over huge ambitions rather she is focused to get into a good university and she says that
"I hope that I will find myself in an extremely well established and academic university. I also would love to gather more knowledge and experience and perhaps to follow a career path relating to healthcare, robotics, space exploration, etc. As for personal goals I hope to increase my singing, tennis and chess abilities."
Through her education, she will one day definitely get into an excellent profession. She gives credit of success to her parents and she says
"I think they are largely responsible for every achievement I have had. They opened many doors for me, taught me the correct values and spent time to teach and play with me".
Her mother and father are working still they give time to her studies and interests. Even if they are busy they discuss her activities during dinner and this is something which anyone of us can do, but all that is required is your will. Her parents also told us that she has got a high IQ level at this age, which can be judged through her questions. Her mother says
"She is always inquisitive and asks questions which are quite so often challenges for us like why are electrons negative?".Â
Her father, Sunil Verma, a banker by profession, also spends a reasonable amount of time with her discussing science and robotics and often says that
Â "Saanya has always surprised me with her questions and her reasoning skills have often put me in situations where I have felt overwhelmed. We are proud of her and are constantly challenged by her".
Saanya's parents are proud of her and many of us desire the same. Her mother said that they are very much happy for Saanya's victory and about her upbringing, she says that " We have always encouraged her to work hard, participate and experience as many different things as possible. We have also prepared her to tackle failure as much as success. For her, family does come first. Culture and values like respect for elders, etc. are extremely important".
Saanya's favourite quote by Arthur C Clark is "Two possibilities exist; either we are alone in the universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying". Through positive attitude and willingness to study, we can create history like Saanya. India is proud of the girls like Saanya Verma.
