My name is Hannah from Derbyshire. I have been a member for roughly a year and a half.
I took the test because I had never really met anyone who was interested in the kinds of topics and issues that fascinated me and no-one I knew was willing to talk about these topics with me. So when my science teacher suggested that it might be worth having a go at taking the test for Mensa - I thought, why not?
I like Mensa because of the welcoming and stimulating atmosphere that exists within the society and that it has opened up many opportunities to me that I would otherwise have never been able to access.
And finally I would encourage other people to have a go at getting into Mensa, as the society can provide lots of opportunities for expanding your interests and for meeting engaging and friendly new people.
