Esther Okade, a 10-year-old child prodigy studying for university degree
She is 10 years old and like all other kids of her age, she is a big fan of Disney’s Frozen, and loves playing with her dolls. But something is very unique about her that distinguishes her from rest of the kids; she is studying in university for a degree in mathematics. Meet Esther Okade, one of the UK’s youngest university students.
Very recently, Esther Okade enrolled in the university and she is already on top of the class, scoring 100% on a recent test. Esther isn’t the only member in her family having this extra-ordinary talent; even her six year old brother Isaiah is also doing calculus and advanced algebra.
Esther wanted to go to university from the age of seven, but her mother was afraid since it was too early.
She would say, ‘Mum, when am I starting?’, and go on and on and on…Finally, after three years she told me, ‘Mum I think it is about time I started university now’, said Esther’s mother.
After a telephonic interview, an essay and a math’s exam, Esther Okade was finally accepted onto the course.
She was flying, she was so happy, said Efe, Esther’s mother.
Esther talks a lot about finances and has big plans for her future. Esther wants to run her own bank one day. Esther also wants to be a millionaire.
