The launch would also see Miss Emmanuella, who also doubles as a website/graphics designer, making a public presentation of her website, mobile app, and graphic creatives at the event. The website which is tagged “Food Website” is aimed at creating a general awareness for everyone to cut down on junk food consumption and imbibe the habit of eating healthy foods, both local and international.
Apparently, consumption of junk foods has been a major problem for many people who often get fat and unhealthy, and with this innovation, Emmanuella wishes to help correct that.
The young lady who is a primary school student has proven to be with big dreams, as she at age 7 started learning about the world of technology.

In 2017, she enrolled at Complete Computer Technology Institute (CCT) where she studied Web Design. In 2018, she furthered her learning, enrolling to study Web Development and Graphic Design at NIIT. Emmanuella later enrolled for Mobile App development at Tech24. She has now developed her personal mobile app and website and is ready to show them to the world.
It is quite interesting to know that several young Nigerians are getting more and more interested in the world of technology and in developing their skills. This is a good omen for the Nigerian tech ecosystem because as long there is a dependence on computers and the software that connects them, there will be a high-demand for those who can code and yes, Nigeria would not be lagging behind.
