The Imafidons

The Imafidons are Britain’s smartest family and have become international models of academic achievement.

Dr. Chris Imafidon and Ann Imafidon came from Edo State, Nigeria, to London over 30 years ago and their children have broken national records in education.

Anne-Marie, 23, the eldest child, is multi-lingual. She speaks six languages and graduated from college at age 10. At 13, she was the youngest person to pass the U.K.’s A-level computing exam. She went on to attend John Hopkins University in Baltimore and received her masters degree from Oxford University, all before she turned 20 years old.

In 2009, fraternal twins Peter and Paula made headlines for becoming youngest students to enter secondary school at age 6. Their older sister, Christina, was 11 when she was accepted to study at any undergraduate institution in Britain.

He plans to pursue a career that will allow him to apply the science he loves to the real world.

    I think this is a great article and that the parents of these children should be congratulated on seeing the specialness in their children and nurturing that. I just know there are so many more children out there who have something very special but whose parents are just passing what they do off as cute instead of finding out whether or not they may have a Genius on there hands.

  2. The powers that be in this society as well as other countries, have no desire to depict melinated people such as these in a positive light. Keep in mind they have placed a great deal of thought and money into devising the plans that have resulted in motivating melinated youth in a manner and fashion that results in them not investing in themselves. Quite naturally they do not wish to bring attention or celebrate these young queens and kings for the awesome extraordinary shining souls that they are.

    The powers that be has invested a tremendous amount of thought and financial resources to create a generation of melinated youth into an undisciplined, directionless massive source of human driftwood, Whose purpose is to serve as a endless financial resource for the private prison industry.. For this reason they will avoid shining the light of attention on these brilliant young king and kings They utilized the power and influence of their media resources at every opportunity to display us to the world as incorrigible dysfunctional criminals..

    Thank you for this awesome post .
