A 16 year old brilliant Nigeria kid known as John Oseni has made it to Italy after having an incredible run as a web developer in Nigeria.

John Oseni who just concluded his secondary school at Command Day Secondary School, Akure, Nigeria in 2021 joined a Web Development training center at the age of 14 while he was a student.

Two years after his enrollment, he has been recognized as a talent by an Italian company who thereafter poached him from Nigeria to Italy.

Narrating his story, John reflected on how he started his journey at the age of 14 with a 2GB RAM big laptop upto how an Italian company known as Flywallet located in Roma, Lazio, Italy hired him to be a Blockchain Developer in the firm.

In his post sharing the moment he flew out of Nigeria, he said it was his first time entering a plane and his parent was as amazed as himself at his growth rate.

“Like everyone will say, There is a first time for everything in Life. My first time entering a plane, No body expected such vast growth from me, Even my parents are suprised that it could come to this,” he posted on Linkedin.

There are lots of Universities abroad sponsoring international students to study Information Technology and other courses using a fully funded Scholarship award. Currently these scholarships are available in Italy and other European countries.
