After the after-school club at the Southfields Primary School, Coventry, England realised her technological skill set and her passion for work, it offered the 10-year-old the opportunity to teach so she could show others the amazing things she can do.

Martin Benbeidge, one of the instructors at the school, said Emmanuella is not only the school’s star, but has superior skill and passion for sharing knowledge.

Despite what she has been able to achieve at such tender age, the 10-year old is not slowing down as she hopes to learn more programming languages like Prolong and Lisp as soon as possible, a move which would aide her further knowledge of Java and Python Coder.

The little girl said she wants the Nigerian government to put up infrastructure that would allow kids in the country to learn some computer skills and be able to code too.

The girl when describing what she does, she said….“I want to become a machine learning engineer because I have experience in programming and my job is to program a machine to perform specific tasks. My knowledge of modern software such as Eclipse, which I use to program Java applications, is also part of the reasons I want to be a machine learning engineer”.

She also added during the interview that she has wanted to teach children because she believes technology is the future, saying technology learning at a tender age will create a better society.

“In the code club, I am teaching HTML and CSS, also Graphics because if you build a website you need some graphics to add on to the page. In the Club, there are currently about nine pupils. 
Hopefully, the club will increase its members in September,” she said.

She also advised all Nigerian kids that it is not too early to start, saying age is not a barrier. She said it is wrong for parents to keep computers away from their six or seven year olds fearing that they may spoil them.

“I think it’s wrong for parents not to allow a child that is up to six or seven years to go near their computer, fearing that they will spoil it because part of what helped me was privilege of accessibility. 


“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 said.
