Nigerian Teen Who Speaks 10 Languages Wins US President's Award And Gets Personal Letter From Trump..

A brilliant boy, Ikechukwu Nwachukwu Dikko, an American of Nigerian parentage, has made his people proud after clinching awards both in his elite high school, Notre Dame High School in Connecticut and the White House.






According to TheNation, the latest laurels won by the youngster, who was one of the best soccer and basketballers in high school, are The Presidential Award For Elite Scholarship In America and the Connecticut Seal of Biliteracy.

The presidential award is given to youngsters who distinguish themselves in scholarly endeavours while the Seal is awarded to students of Notre Dame proficient in at least eight foreign languages.

Ikechukwu whose father once sought to become the governor of Connecticut on the platform React Party, speaks 10 languages, including Igbo, English, French, Italian, Spanish, Korean, Chinese, Russian, Dutch and German.
The glitz and buzz that hitherto were the icing on the achievements were lost this year to the Coronavirus pandemic. But the White House and Notre Dame were not ready to let the virus have an upper hand. They sent delegations on different dates to deliver the awards in the homes of the awardees.

    I love that he speaks Igbo. I speak Igbo and french most times to my kids, their dad speaks annang to them. Our family friend keeps saying " you guys are confusing these kids, lol.
    The truth is that kids are capable of learning as many as 6 languages at the same time.

  9. Many of you have kids smarter than this our mazi Ikechukwu, but the zoo will never allow them attain their highest potential. Do not allow your children die with their dreams. Take them away from here. You owe them that. If that's the only thing you'd do for them, it is enough. Save your kids from Nigeria.

    1. Yes oooo, these are the people I celebrate along with the hardworking and good Nigerian people. Not saying Nigerians are wicked, fraudsters, this and that all the time. A whole lot of crime goes on in the US and other climes, but they choose to celebrate only the good about themselves. Hence you think they are all good.
