What Mensa Means to Me

Gayle Cook,
M-Aura, newsletter of North Texas Mensa

What Mensa means to me is confirmation. I grew up with a total lack of self-confidence and truly thought I was stupid, despite being placed in the accelerated learning classes in high school.

As an adult, I slowly began to acquire self-confidence, but it was a painful process with many setbacks. I had learned of Mensa, but never considered applying. Then I learned that my older brother, the systems analyst, thought I was more intelligent than he was.

Being invited to join Mensa was a tremendous boost to my self-esteem. In Mensa, I found loving friends and a forum that has allowed me to expand in many ways. Mensa confirmed what I had come to suspect ... that I really was OK!
