10-year-old Esther Okade may enjoy playing with her dolls, but she also loves quadratic equations. Esther is doing extraordinary things and recently started her undergraduate degree. She’s one of the UK’s youngest university students and is studying at Open University.
Esther’s mother, Efe, said her daughter always dreamed of going to university early.
“From the age of seven Esther has wanted to go to university. But I was afraid it was too soon. “She would say, ‘Mum, when am I starting?’, and go on and on and on. Finally, after three years she told me, ‘Mum I think it is about time I started university now,” Efe told the Telegraph.
Esther isn’t the only smart kid in the family. Her 6-year-old brother Isaiah is already doing calculus and algebra. Esther has being career goals as well.
“Esther talks about running her own bank one day,” added Efe. “She has a lot of plans, and talks a lot about finances. “She says she wants to be a millionaire.
I’m quite sure we’ll be hearing more about Esther in the years to come.
