A british Nigerian girl, Esther Okade badges PHD at 14. The news broke out about a 10-year old math genius, Esther Okade, who is born of Nigerian parents in international media in 2015 firstly published by CNN. According to reports, Esther did not attend a formal school as she was homeschooled by her mother; Omonefe Okade who happened to be a teacher and a mathematician. 

Esther could have grown up like every other girl-child of her age but she exceeds her age made academically. Initially, she attended school like every girl of her age but was stopped when her parents notice the vibrancy in her, thus the decision to be homeschooled. At six, Esther took math GCSE, a task generally undertaken by 14 -16-year-old in the UK and passed. The genius wrote a book series titled Yummy Yummy Algebra. She started her university course on an excellent note as one of the youngest undergraduate students and was already top of her class, getting a perfect score in her first exam.

Esther, who studied Financial Math, said she wants to finish the whole course in two years and wants to own a bank by the time she is 15 because of her love for numbers.

I want to (finish the course) in two years. I want to have a bank by the time I’m 15 because I like numbers and I like people and banking is a great way to help people.” She said.
