Nigeria’s Miss Anne-Marie Osawemwemze Imafidon To Receive Honour From Queen Elizabeth II

Nigeria’s Miss Anne-Marie Osawemwemze Imafidon will on Friday be decorated by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, with the prestigious honour of Member of the Most Excellent British Empire (MBE) for her services to young women with speciality in Sciences, Technology,Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).




The eldest daughter of Prof. Chris and Ann Imafidon from Edo State whose family has been dubbed the Brainiest Family in Europe,Anne-Marie holds the record of being the youngest girl to ever pass two GCSE examinations — for Mathematics and Information Technology and A-level computing at the age of 11 in Britain.

An MBE is an award given by the Queen to an individual for outstanding service to the community or local hands on service.

Due to her high exceptional brilliance, she received a British
Scholarship to study Mathematics at the John Hopkins University at the age of 13 in 2003. Two years later, she commenced a degree at Oxford University after which she enrolled for her Masters degree setting another record of the youngest Masters degree holder from the Ivy league university.


Imafidon, who is a multi-linguist, speak six languages and has worked with Goldman Sachs, Hewlett-Packard, Deutsche Bank, and Lehman Brothers. In 2013, she founded Stemettes, a social enterprise which inspires the next generation of women into pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics with an objective to break barriers women who pursue a career in the field face.




Stemettes, which grants awards to young women, have programs workshops and events designed to introduce young women to STEM careers,concepts, and role models, have attracted over 7000 young women from across the UK, Ireland and Europe.

Imafidon’s rather unique achievements at a young age has stood her out as a person to watch out for by the British press; she was named on Evening Standard’s recent list of ’25 under 25s’ and a Guardian ‘Top 10 women in tech you need to know’ as well as being the UK IT Industry and British Computer Society’s Young IT Professional of the Year in
2013.


Her father, Professor Chris Imafidon, known as the patriarch of
Britain's brainiest family, said he received the news last year of her 
inclusion in the 2017 honours list with shock.


“Like every parent would feel, we are still in shock. This is simply God-orchestrated. I, personally never believed that her young career would accelerate to this historic height. This is beyond belief,” he said in a chat.


The Imafidon family definitely have the achievers blood running in their DNA as not only Anne-Marie dominates their achievements wall of fame. Her sister, Christina, 24, is the youngest student to ever get accepted and study at an undergraduate institution at any British university at 11; another sister, Samantha, 17, having passed two
rigorous high school-level mathematics and statistics exams at the age of six, while the twins, Peter and Paul, made British history as the youngest students to ever enter high school when they became the youngest to ever pass the University of Cambridge’s advanced mathematics exam, setting world records by passing the A/AS-level math papers.


With the Imafidon family has been setting across the world, he advised parents to change their methods of education in an obvious changing world in order to explore every child’s gifts and talents.

“The same God has given every child gifts and talents. We parents must join the ExcellenceinEducatio­n.org.uk in developing such massive potential. As stated in my forthcoming book entitled "The Genius in You", we can't use the old methodology of learning. Schools and society must wake to the re-engineered system of education that understands that there is a genius in every child and greatness in every adult. This genius is irrespective of ethnicity, gender,
nationality, postcode, class or creed. So every family can equal or exceed our achievements.”


Prof Chris Imafidon who invented this accelerated academic and career development path, has tested it on people of diverse race and it produced the same or improved result and achievement as attain by his children. He stated that some of this exceptional educative methods are including in his book, "The Genius in you."


He revealed that he will be visiting Nigeria very soon to launch the learning methodology to enable Nigerian parents learning of their winning ways while Anne-Marie will be expand Stemettes to also offer Nigeria young girls interested in pursuing a career in STEM an opportunity to realise their dreams while he


“Our grandparents taught us that charity begins at home. We are very enthusiastic about Africa and must contribute our quota to the training and education of young minds. We want to launch a bigger program in Africa, particularly Nigeria and work with the corporate community, industry leaders so that we can deploy the re-engineeredlearning methodology of www.ExcellenceinEduc­ation.org.uk program. We
know that with these programs young Nigerians can equal or exceed our record-breaking achievement. The next generation of Africans have no choice but excel because there is a genius in everyone.”


Others Nigerians who will also be honoured this year include Prof. Elizabeth Nneka Anionwu, a Professor of Nursing, who gets an OBE for her services to nursing and the Mary Seacole statue appeal, Chris Ofili, an artist who gets a CBE for his services to arts and Jeremiah Oluwatosin Ayotunde, a Cadet Colour Sergeant who gets an OBE for his services to young people and the community of London. Top ranking tennis star, Andy Murray, is among the hundreds of achievers to be
honoured.

I love the big brother show with a passion but I feel that offering such appreciation as the one to this girl here would do a developing country like Nigeria better..

Our priorities are just so misplaced. Oh God! Please give me children as brainy as these. Amen

Anon go and sit down, what is the lie about what she said about Bini girls. They like to prostitute in Italy its their core profession and the prostitutes ain't denying it either and it doesn't mean that other tribes don't go to Italy too but Edo's are leading ask NAPTIP. Moreso, there are also very great and loving Edo's who are doing well, all of them are not bad. If somebody is a thief in a family and another a pastor it doesn't absolve the their automatically for his sins. Think b4 you abuse Ppl.

Nigeria and Nigerians only celebrate evil, prostitutes, big nyash, big breast, slay queens, slay mamas, lesbianianism, gayism, thieves, corruption and everything EVIL/SATANIC!!!

Yes ooO! Pepper-Them-Gang team and slay queens/mamas should come and see a beautiful and well-endowed lady with a lot of brains and achievements who simply chose NOT to be displaying her nakedness, fuckery prowess, twerking skills, big breast and big nyash BUT rather chose to make something meaningful, useful and magnificent out of her amazing life!!!

Nigeria and Nigerians only celebrate evil, fornication, adultery, prostitutes, big nyash, big breast, slay queens, slay mamas, fuckers, lesbianianism, gayism, thieves, corruption and everything EVIL/SATANIC!!!

GOD will continue to bless this intelligent lady and her smart family...AMEN!!!
