Emmanuella Mayaki: the 10-year-old coding genius

I started coding in HTML and CSS when I was 10. 20 years later, I’m barely an intermediate coder. But at 10, Emmanuella Mayaki is already light years ahead of people 3x her age.

Emmanuella is a Black Nigerian girl who recently got her first job at the Southfield Primary School in Coventry, England, as their after school coding club teacher.

Her love for tech started 3 years earlier and she later received a diploma and continues to learn more programming languages. At 10!

In the club, there are currently about nine pupils. Hopefully, the club will increase its members in September. 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,” she added. “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.

I am in awe. May she be protected at all costs.
