Good afternoon great Nigerians. You are again welcome to our rebrand Nigeria series.
Do you know that the smartest kids in Britain are Nigerians? On today’s episode of our Rebrand Nigeria ambassador series, we shall be showcasing these twins who have been described as the “wonder twins” because of their incredible smartness and the record-breaking streaks they have had in England.
Paula and Peter Imafidon are twins who are considered to be the highest young achievers in Great Britain.
When they were 9 years of age, Paula and Peter made history as the youngest children in British history to attend high school. That immediately gained them some popularity in England. Everybody wanted to know who these “Wonder Kids” were.
The kids became the youngest persons ever to have passed the University of Cambridge’s advanced mathematics exam. They passed the exams after participating in the Excellence in Education program. The achievements made them even more famous around the world as child prodigies who have been blessed with incredible brains.
The twins set world records when they passed the A/AS-level math papers in England, a feat which set them apart permanently from any set of students in UK history.
Both children are aspiring musicians although Peter has said he will like to serve as Prime Minister one day while his sister Paula, wants to teach math.
The twins are also athletes. Peter is a 100m and 400m relay champion in London and Paula is county rugby champion.
However, genius seems to flow in the Imafidon’s family as Paula and Peter are not the only smart kids in the family. Their three older siblings are also high-achieving.
Ann-Marie Imafidon is the oldest child of the Imafidons. This young woman who is now 28 year old is incredibly talented. She was already speaking six languages by the tender age of 10.
Ann-Marie went on to become the youngest girl ever to pass A-level computing at the young age of 13.
At the same age of 13, she won a British Government scholarship to study mathematics at the very prestigious Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, USA.
When she turned 15 years old, Ann-Marie gained admission to study for a degree program at the University of Oxford. Two years later at age 17, she had already started a master’s degree at Oxford.
In 2010, when she was just 19 years old, Ann-Marie became the youngest person ever to graduate with a masters degree.
Because of her incredible success in academies, Ann-Marie was described as a “serial world record breaker” by the ‘Higher Education Digest’ in it’s September 2011 edition.
For her work, Ann-Marie has been recognized by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II as a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, MBE.
Christina Imafidon is another very brilliant sibling of the twins. She was just 11 years old when she got accepted to study at the United Kingdom University.
This feat made her become the youngest person in history to be accepted to study at an undergraduate level at any British university.
Christina has also gone on to conduct research on mathematics with Oxford University.
Samantha Imafidon yet another sibling stunned the UK when she passed two high school-level mathematics and statistics exams at the very tender age of 6.
Samantha went on to become the youngest girl in the United Kingdom to ever attend secondary school at the mere age of 9. Just like her siblings she was towing the line of great excellence.
This young lady is also credited with being the one who had thoroughly mentored the twins, Paula and Peter, to pass their own test when they were also 6 years old.
Their father, professor Chris Imafidon is a researcher in ophthalmology and a renowned international education consultant to several governments
Imafidon is renowned to be a multi-award winning scientist who has had his works featured in top media outlets like CNN, BBC, Fox News, New York Times, Daily Mail and a host of others. In fact, Imafidon has been reportedly quoted and cited in more than 1,500 major media outlets all over the world.
His expertise is in developing young children into well-bred achievers in academics and other fields and his model of education is used in Europe and Asia, little wonder the giant strides of his children in academics.
We are proud of Paul and Paula’s achievement and that of his siblings and we are honoured to celebrate them today as Rebrand Nigeria Ambassadors.
