About

Anne-Marie Imafidon is a woman on a mission. A child prodigy who had received degrees from prestigious universities on both sides of the Atlantic by the time she was 20, she is campaigning to get more women into Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). [Forbes]

Eldest child in ‘Britain’s Brainiest Family’ [Sky News].  “I like Maths, Technology and helping others” – @aimafidon

A-Marie has always been interested in business, Maths and technology. Her rather unique set of achievements include passing two GCSEs aged ten (Mathematics & ICT), holding the current world record for the youngest girl ever to pass A-level computing (aged 11), being named on Evening Standard’s recent list of ’25 under 25s’ & a Guardian ‘Top 10 women in tech you need to know’ and being one of the youngest to be awarded a Masters’ degree in Mathematics and Computer Science by the University of Oxford, aged 20. She was also named the UK IT Industry & British Computer Society’s Young IT Professional of the Year in 2013, Red Magazine’s ‘Woman to Watch’ 2014, won a Points of Light award from the UK Prime Minister in October 2014 and was named the 29th Most Influential woman in IT in 2015.

Most recently Anne-Marie has set up the Stemettes project – a bid to inspire the next generation of females into Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics roles via a series of panel events, hackathons and exhibitions. As part of the initiative she has also co-founded Outbox Incubator: the worlds first tech incubator for teenage girls.

Previous work at Goldman Sachs, Hewlett-Packard, Deutsche Bank and Lehman Brothers mean she has amassed a wealth of experiences – this blog will chart the highlights of her new ones. Sometimes she writes elsewhere.
