Mercy Ayodele

Ten-year-old, Primary 6 pupil Mercy goes to Bridge, Saibu Okoya in Lagos. She likes where she lives because she has lots of friends to play with, although she says she would like there to be more jobs for people.

Mercy is a budding scientist! She says it’s her favourite subject because she gets to learn about different types of exercise, and now she knows how to be healthy. When Mercy grows up, she dreams of being an aerospace engineer. For Mercy then, the sky really is the limit!

Teacher Boyin is Mercy’s favourite teacher, because she’s always happy to help when she can’t understand something and she also teaches Mercy right from wrong. When asked what she would like to tell the world about Nigeria, Mercy responds that it is a country full of great teachers!
