Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon was the youngest girl in Britain to get a higher education qualification in computing, aged just 11.




Now, at 28, she works getting girls into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers through her company Stemettes.




Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have supported her work, which involves tearing down stereotypes about women in tech.




Imafidon spoke to Business Insider after being named in the UK Tech 100, a ranking of the 100 coolest people in the UK tech industry.

What does it take to become a child computing prodigy? Judging by Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon — who got an A-level college qualification in computing aged just 11 — it might have something to do with being the class clown.
Having spent a lot of time learning HTML and web-building on her Dad's computer at the age of nine, Imafidon was an impatient learner at school. "I wasn't like a terror, I was just all over the place, a class clown," she says of her behaviour with teachers. "I was kind of winding them up, because I don't sit still."
