Muhammad Haryz Nadzim is three years old.

And he just became one of the youngest people to be accepted into Mensa UK.

According to Malay Mail, UK-based Muhammad Haryz achieved this incredible feat with an IQ score of 142 on the Stanford Binet test.

Mensa is the largest and oldest high IQ society in the world. To become a member, you would need to have an IQ in the top 2%.

According to the report, Haryz's score placed him in the top 0.3% of the population.

At the tender age of two, the young 'genius' had already begun reading storybooks to himself

His mother Nur Anira Asyikin Hashim revealed to Metro UK that he uttered his first words at seven months old.

“We didn't have much experience, so we just thought that's how kids were,” the 30-year-old said.

But it was not until he attended nursery that Haryz's parents realised he was special and way more advanced than other children his age.

Aside from being extremely intelligent, Haryz is just like any other three-year-old

"He enjoys jumping in puddles, painting, singing, all the normal stuff for a child of that age," his mother explained to the portal.

"His favourite television programmes are Story Bots and Numberblocks, but he often prefers having conversations with older peers and adults."

To inspire other children, his parents set up a YouTube channel called 'Little Haryz', which features the young storyteller.

The couple, who are both from an engineering background, hope to support their son in whatever he does

They expressed that they do not want him to feel under-stimulated but also want to avoid making him feel pushed. 

"We want him to be a normal child who plays and does normal things that children do."

"The most important thing is that he is happy with what he is doing, and we will be proud of him no matter what he achieves," Anira added, according to Metro UK.

May you go far in all that you do, kiddo!
