Meet 9-year-old Emmanuella, who developed a food website, now a mobile App

I am always filled with excitement when I see young children achieve impressive milestones at such a young age (especially from Nigeria). Miss Emmanuella Oziofu is an example of such, she created a website called Food Website back in February at age 9, and now she is set to launch her mobile App.

On building the App she said,

“The website, known as Food website is to encourage both parents and children to eat healthy local and international dishes and to cut down on junk food. One of the contents of the website is Goodbye Junk Food, Hello Super Healthy Food, which contains all African food, continental dishes and a list of restaurants in various cities in the world.”

Osamudiamen advised parents and the Federal Government to create an enabling environment for children at a very young age to learn ICT. “Children in countries like China are doing very well when it comes to ICT; Nigerian children are smart and can also do well in ICT. The government should create a good ICT infrastructure in schools and the enabling environment for children to learn the course.”
