A 16-year-old Nigerian wonderkid, Tomisin Ogunnubi, has emerged as one of the winners of the global $1bn Rise Initiative after beating 49,900 other applicants who applied from 170 countries across the world.

Tomisin Ogunnubi who specializes in technology and coding gained a lot of attention after she developed an app called “My Locator”, a software that helps lost children find their way back home in 2016.

The “My Locator” app 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. Since the creation of the app, it has garnered over 1,000 downloads.

Tomisin emerged as one of the 100 winners of the $1bn Rise initiative fund and will now benefit from a lifetime award including scholarships to study abroad, mentorship, career development opportunities and funding.
