U.K. School Hires 10-Year-Old Nigerian Tech Genius As Its New Coding Instructor

The tech field yields a large portion of high-paying salary jobs with numerous career paths. However, marginalized communities are shut out of these job opportunities due to the lack of resources and access. One remarkable young Nigerian girl managed to defy the odds and was recently hired by a school in the United Kingdom to teach others about coding.

Emmanuella Mayaki is a 10-year-old coding and programming prodigy who recently received her first job at the Southfield Primary School in Coventry, England, as the after school coding club teacher. According to Face 2 Face Africa, she will be responsible for teaching other kids her age about the basics of coding including HTML and CSS. The school selected her for the job because of her extraordinary skill and knowledge in the area.

Mayaki’s passion for technology started at 7 years old, where, in another two years she would obtain a diploma with a specialty in multiple software programs including Advanced PowerPoint, Desktop Publishing, and Advanced Excel. She is still actively learning other coding languages and programs to expand her knowledge even further.

“In the club, there are currently about nine pupils. Hopefully, the club will increase its members in September,” she said in an interview with Face 2 Face Africa.

“Today, my Academy App among others is already on Google Play store where I pass on knowledge of coding and graphics. I remember at age seven, I set a target to become a professional web designer and analyst at age nine, and I have accomplished it,” she added. “In the first week, I was pretty nervous because I had never taught a group of children. Although, my experience was sublime because I gained experience and I also enriched my skills. My observations were that not everyone grasps how to do it on their first try and there are some that they rush through it in a breeze.”

Please let her remain and grow there o, no need to reason here.

Nice something... started up with coding and I could say I was a prodigy myself, never got this platform though.... There are many like her, if only this God forsaken country could help them to brighter future.

sureteeboy:

It is called the illusion of knowledge. The Dunning - Kruger effect perfectly explains why stupid people think they are smart
Exactly.. sometimes ago one on nairaland even said Americans are very dull and Nigerians are smarter than them.. I asked him how he derived at such conclusion then he said it was because he argued with alot of them on quora and he beats them hands down.. I was like so because you argue with a few Americans online then it means Nigerians are way smarter than the 320M+ Americans out there. Everyone even has a specialty you can't have a vast array of knowledge in every field. you can only be extremely knowledgeable in one or 2.. max 3. Person wey Sabi sports no mean say he Sabi politics or current affairs , he no mean say he sabi egyptology or know about ancient Greece and their gods. It's just like a foreigner coming to nairaland to argue then conclude that Nigerians are very dull people. The Americans with extremely high IQs, if you wanna meet them, go to research centers or the lab or ivy league schools. The problem is that most nigerians just like using a lone wolf incidence to make a generic judgment. You taste an apple that is bitter then you conclude that apples are bitter fruits. If anyone asks you in future if apples are sweet, you'd say no. Back then in school we had a Lebanese in my class. He was average tho and because of that everybody concluded that Dem no dey Sabi book for Lebanon lol...


Firstly this girl is not a Nigerian. She might have a Nigerian background but it doesn't make her one. We are always quick to claim any foreign good deeds


The hype about Nigerians doing well abroad is getting too much.. You can't even compare Nigerians to the Asians. Most especially Indians and Chinese. They go there and make waves yet you hear little noise about it. But here in naija we go as far as saying Nigerians are the most intelligent people in the world all because one graduated with first class whereas he was just one Nigerian out if many foreigners that came out with first class.. How many countries have you been to or what do you know to conclude that Nigerians are the most intelligent in the world.
