16-year-old Tomisin Ogunnubi has beaten 49,900 other tech whiz kids from 170 countries to emerge one of the champions in the $1bn Rise initiative, Siggy reports.
The Nigerian female teenage coding star has emerged one of the 100 Global Winners at the global tech competition.
Tomisin will get lifetime benefits including a scholarship, mentorship, career development opportunities and funding.
In 2016, she got the attention of tech companies after creating ”My Locator”, a genius app that helps lost children find their way back home.
My Locator uses Google Maps to track users as they move from one location to the next. Users can add numbers that will receive their location in the event of an emergency.
The teen learned how to code when she was 12 and wanted to create something useful.
She has also explored the fields of machine learning, design and animation.
