Nigerian teen crowned winner of Global Mathematics competition

15-year-old Nigerian teen, Faith Odunsi has been crowned the winner in the just-concluded Global Open Mathematics Tournament after she defeated participants from Europe, Africa, America, Asia, and Australia.

In an interview with The Punch, the SS3 student from Ijebu in Ogun state said although the contest was tough, she is proud and appreciates the fact that she emerged the winner.

Detailing her journey to winning, she revealed that she had to go through different stages of the competition before she was crowned the winner.

In the first stage, there was a computer-based test and we had to answer many questions in one hour. My score on the test was 66. The second stage took the same format and I also scored 66. The quarter and semi-finals were on Microsoft themes. We were asked questions and we put in our answers; the first to put in the correct answers got 10 points. She explained during the interview.

On how she managed to balance between her studies and participating in the completion, Faith says that she was very keen to ensure that she spared time after academic activities to prepare for the contest. Her teacher would coach her after school period. 

Her win in the competition comes with a monetary prize of $1,000.
