This little boy is only 3 and he has accomplished what most of us will never able to do: he just got his invitation from Mensa, the British high IQ society.
The invitation was sent after a meeting with a consultant psychologist who made him take the Stanford-Biner intelligence test. According to the test, he had a score of 142, which puts him in the 99.7th percentile and makes him Mensa's youngest member in the process.
According to the test's website, those scoring above 145 are considered "genius or near genius", while scores between 130-145 are "very superior".
What makes him different from his peers is the way he learns very quickly and processes information incredibly fast.
In addition to being a genius, he is just a "typical" boy. In a CNN report, Haryz’s mother Nur Anira Askiyin stated that her son was a normal 3-year-old boy, who likes Play-Doh, art, and reading. 
Nicknamed "mini brainbox" by his mother, he can also do math with ease, and explain scientific concepts such as how rain forms.
It seems that little Haryz will take his place among the young prodigies such as Laurent Simmons and Michael Kearney. 
While his mother is obviously delighted by the turn of events, she is surely going to be happy with whatever road little Haryz will choose. In an Instagram post she stated, “Dear Haryz, let’s be honest, no matter what you achieved in your life, we will always be proud of you.”
When the amount of pressure young prodigies face in their lifetimes is considered, this affirmation seems rather touching.
