Black couple, Dr. Chris Imafidon and Ann Imafidon have raised their children to become the brightest Black kids in the history of Britain. 

Dr. Imafidon is an internationally recognized academics scholar and education consultant, who moved from Edo State, Nigeria to the United Kingdom over 35 years ago.

In his statement:

 “If you really want a child to learn anything, find out the best way that a child learns. Every human being has a unique way of learning”.

It is apparent that his wards must have inherited this great intellect from him. Their top notch intelligence is seen to be consuming and adorable as blacks breaking bounds and setting records.

This is the eldest of the children, Anne-Marie Imafidon, who obtained her Master’s Degree from Oxford University at the teen age of 17. She was also the youngest person to pass the A-level computing exam. This mind blowing breakthrough made her to be called a “serial world record breaker” in the September 2011 edition of “Higher Education Digest.”

Career wise, Annie-Marie is currently the Co-founder and CEO of Stemettes, an organization which has helped 40,000 girls realize their STEM potential which she started in 2013.

In 2016, Anne-Marie launched her own Stemettes STEM resources app, which is presently used by thousands of “Stemillion” school club members. She then works with media companies like the BBC and 20th Century Fox to put more tech role models on screen, according to Forbes.

Paula and Peter Imafidon:

Their twin, Paula and Peter Imafidon, at age 8 set a joint world record, when they passed an A/AS-level examination in mathematics. A year later, they took and passed the University of Cambridge’s Advanced Mathematics (FAM) paper thereby becoming the youngest students ever to pass the examination.

At age 9, they also made another landmark history as the youngest children to attend high school in British history. Now 15, and the youngest of the Imafidon kids, the duo are not only academically brilliant, they are heart warming musicians, and are good at different sports. 

Peter is also a 100m and 400m relay champion in London, who hopes to serve as Prime Minister and his sister Paula is a county champion in rugby, who likes to teach math. 

Their Father is currently working as an education consultant to numerous academics outlets in and outside the United Kingdom. 

The Imafidons have been used as a template to improve scholarship in Europe and Asia continents.

 Dr. Imafidon strongly believes that anyone can achieve what he has achieved with his family through a specific model for education.
