PRODIGY: Esther Okade

MEET MATHS genius Esther Okade. At the age of 10, the British-Nigerian prodigy is already enrolled in a course at the Open University making her one of the youngest undergraduate student in the UK.

Ester, from Walsall in England’s West Midlands, is also at the top of her class and writes math workbooks for children called Yummy Yummy Algebra, in her spare time.

While her proud family are working on opening a nursery school and primary school in Nigeria’s Delta region.

“I want to [finish the course] in two years,” she told CNN. “Then I’m going to do my Ph.D. in financial maths when I’m 13. I want to have my own bank by the time I’m 15 because I like numbers and I like people and banking is a great way to help people.”
