Nigerians have always been known to be a very active set of people who usually turn out to be achievers wherever they go to. They are hard workers who love to set trends and lead the pace.
However, a lot of negativity is usually accredited to the Nigerian identity because of the activities of fraudsters, drug pushers, organ harvesters, religious extremists, banditry, kidnapping to mention a few.
Despite the negative profile, a number of Nigerians have proved beyond doubt that they are very smart and brainy people who usually excel in academics in all countries around the world where they are found. This assertion is definitely no lie and has been exemplified by a Nigerian family in the UK; the Imafidon family. The Imafidon family has come to be known as the smartest family in England.
The Imafidons are a Nigerian family of 7 living in England. Their father Chris Imafidon and their mother Ann Imafidon are indigenes of Edo state who emigrated to England more than three decades ago.
The family has achieved exceptional feats in the field of academics over the years that they have come to be known all over the world for their smartness.
Let’s now give you a profile of these Nigerian geniuses.
Chris Imafidon
The father Chris Imafidon is a renowned professor and multi-award winning scientist who has had his works featured in top media outlets like CNN, BBC, Fox News, New York Times, Daily Mail and a host of others. Reports say Imafidon has been quoted and cited in more than 1,500 major media outlets all over the world.
The man’s expertise is in developing young children into well-bred achievers in academics and other fields. Imafidon believes that with proper training every child can become a truly great achiever.
It is clearly evident in how well he has trained his children to excel well in school as he is a proud father of five geniuses who have done the family proud and we will now talk about their achievements.
Paula and Peter Imafidon
Paula and Peter Imafidon are twins and they are perhaps the most popular members of the Imafidon family. The reason is because of their incredible smartness and the record-breaking streaks they have had in England.
In fact, these two kids are considered to be the highest young achievers in Great Britain. At one point, they were even given the nickname “The Wonder Twins”.
When they were just 9 years of age, Paula and Peter made history as the youngest children in British history to attend high school. That immediately gained them some popularity in England. Everybody wanted to know who these “Wonder Kids” were.
They kids became the youngest persons ever to have passed the University of Cambridge’s advanced mathematics exam. They passed the exams after participating in the Excellence in Education program. The achievements made them even more famous around the world as child prodigies who have been blessed with incredible brains.
The twins set world records when they passed the A/AS-level math papers in England, a feat which set them apart permanently from any set of students in UK history.
Both children are aspiring musicians although Peter has said he will like to serve as Prime Minister one day while his sister Paula, wants to teach math.
The twins are also athletes. Peter is a 100m and 400m relay champion in London and Paula is county rugby champion.
Ann-Marie Imafidon
Ann-Marie Imafidon is the oldest child of the Imafidons. This young woman who is now 28 year old is incredibly talented. Ann-Marie who started her schooling at St Saviour Church of England Primary School in Walthamstow, London, was already speaking six languages by the tender age of 10.
Ann-Marie went on to become the youngest girl ever to pass A-level computing at the young age of 13. At the same age of 13, the young girl won a British Government scholarship to study mathematics at the very prestigious Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, USA.
When she turned 15 years old, Ann-Marie gained admission to study for a degree program at the University of Oxford. Two years later at age 17, she had already started a master’s degree at Oxford.
In 2010, when she was just 19 years old, Ann-Marie became the youngest person ever to graduate with a masters degree.
Because of her incredible success in academies, Ann-Marie was described as a “serial world record breaker” by the ‘Higher Education Digest’ in it’s September 2011 edition.
Today, the young woman is doing very well for herself. In 2013, she launched and became the CEO of Stemettes. Stemettes is an outfit that is championing the work and participation of women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering And Mathematics).
For her work, Ann-Marie has been recognized by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II as a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, MBE.
Christina Imafidon
Christina Imafidon is another very brilliant child produced by the Imafidons. This young lady was just 11 years old when she got accepted to study at the United Kingdom University.
This feat made her become the youngest person in history to be accepted to study at an undergraduate level at any British university.
Christina has also gone on to conduct research on mathematics with Oxford University.
Samantha Imafidon
Samantha Imafidon stunned the UK when she passed two high school-level mathematics and statistics exams at the very tender age of 6.
Samantha went on to become the youngest girl in the United Kingdom to ever attend secondary school at the mere age of 9. Just like her siblings she was towing the line of great excellence.
This young lady is also credited with being the one who had thoroughly mentored the twins, Paula and Peter, to pass their own test when they were also 6 years old.
One thing stands sure is that the man Chris Imafidon and his wife, Ann Imafidon have done an enviable work in training their children and should be a strong example in how parents must raise their kids in the contemporary world.
