Too Brilliant For Words

I’d like to start the month on a positive note.

If you thought you were brilliant just wait until you meet the children of the Imafidon family.  At 9 years old, Paula and Peter Imafidon will be the youngest  Secondary School students in the UK.  It turns out these cute twins have been making headlines since they were six  when they were the youngest pupils to pass GCSEs.  By age 13, the eldest had  received a government scholarship to study Maths at Johns Hopkins University and has gone on to work for companies such as Hewlett-Packard and Lehman Brothers.

In case you’re starting to question your own achievements in light of all this information, remember to focus on the pleasure of seeing wonderful children breaking records (especially when they have Nigerian roots).

Here’s their website and  some links if like me you can’t get enough of the Imafidons:
