In Five Years, This Is What Esther Will Be Doing…

She’s the coolest chick in England right now.

This is Esther Okade’s five-year plan:

– Graduate from Open University with a degree in math

– Earn her Ph.D.

– Begin running her own bank

She expects to cross these goals off of her to-do list by the time she’s 15 or 16.

Plenty of girls her age have expressed equally ambitious dreams, but Esther isn’t just daydreaming from a sandbox at her elementary school playground. She’s already an undergraduate at Open University — and, at only 10 years old, she’s currently at the top of her class.

She’s not just a math prodigy; she’s a math devotee. In an interview with The Birmingham Mail, Esther speaks about math the way most kids speak about macaroni and cheese. Or the way prepubescent girls speak about Harry Styles.

·         So Esther, do you want to tell my why Math is your favourite subject.

·         I just love Math. All the numbers, all the solving. It’s like a mystery.

·         So, how are you finding your degree?

·         Easy.

·         Easy?!

·         Super easy.

·         So how quickly do you think you’re going to do it?

·         Mmmm. I’m thinking … about two years.

·         Fantastic. So what do you want to do when you finish your degree?

·         Well, I go to my PHD. Then I’ll start running my own business. I want to             be a banker.

·         So you want to be running your own bank.

·         Yep.

·         How old do you think you’re going to be when you do that?

·         Sixteen?

According to The Telegraph, Esther’s mother, Efe says her daughter wants to be a millionaire. And, if we know anything about Esther, she won’t have any trouble counting her money…
