My name is Gillian Kennedy and I am from Dublin.
I have been a member since 1994.
I took the test out of curiosity and to prove my mother wrong - but I ended up proving her right. I didn't join until several years later, when I was living in London and wanted to meet new people.
I like Mensa because it allows me to meet people of all ages, from all walks of life and to take part in fun and interesting activities, some of which I would never have the opportunity to do otherwise.
And finally I have made many good friends through Mensa - including my husband, who I met through mutual Mensa friends.
