The 13-year old student of Federal Government Girls College, Owerri, Imo State explained that she loves dancing which inspires her to solve Mathematics questions. “I love dancing greatly. It is my hobby. When I am not solving mathematics problems, I dance…This helps me greatly whenever I go back to my Mathematics,” she told journalists in Lagos last weekend.
