U.K School Hires 10-Year-Old Nigerian Child As Its New Coding Instructor
A 10-year-old Nigerian prodigy, Emmanuella Mayaki, has got her first job as a coding instructor in the United Kingdom.
Mayaki, who is coding and programming prodigy, was hired as an after school coding club teacher at the Southfield Primary School in Coventry, England.
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 which has has proven beyond reasonable doubt.
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.
But she is not stopping there as she’s 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.
“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,” she said.
Meanwhile, KanyiDaily had reported how a 41-year-old teacher hired a hitman to help end her life, but he ended up falling in love with her and desperately tried to persuade her not to go through with it.
