Giftedness is not what I thought it was
by Melanie Hinze, for Australian Association for the Education of the Gifted and Talented, Gifted Awareness Week 2022
"There was a time when I'd only vaguely heard of Mensa. A time when gifted children to me were quiet and studious. They had perfect behaviour at school and got straight As. Life was probably super easy for them. They invented things and read big books and spoke well, and probably grew into scientists. But now that I live gifted, I know the truth."
