Samantha Imafidon

The youngest girl ever to gain admissions to a British secondary, at the age of 9 Samantha is no stranger to success! After hitting the papers a few years ago for passing her Maths and Statistics GCSEs aged 6, Samantha has since made appearances on Sky News as well as other well-known press outlets.

She has written a book with her siblings called 'Maths Manual' to help her friends and other girls her age to succeed in Maths like she has.

Samantha says: "Some of my friends think Maths is hard, but if you try and try again, the answer will come out of your head!"
