The 14-year-old Fifehanmi Bodunrin, who is set to start her education at a prestigious university in September, revealed that she read 500 books one summer when she was only 5 years old.

“One summer, there was this thing at the library to read books and I read 500 books.” According to her, reading is like being in another world entirely.” She said.

Speaking further, she said: “Once you start reading, if you’re really invested in a book, then it’s like you’re not even there anymore like you’re inside the book, you can imagine it in your head. I really like it.”

The young girl also revealed that her love for martial arts started when she watched Kung Fu Panda. Fifehanmi, who is a third-degree black belt in karate, noted that martial arts taught her focus.

She said: “I watched Kung Fu Panda, and I was like this is for me, this is who I want to be. It’s honestly just for you to know that you’ve done something, you’ve worked hard on something and now these are the results.

“There’s this thing called sleep, I really like sleeping, and you think it’s like, ‘oh I like sleeping,’ no, no, no, like sleeping is a hobby, sleeping is an activity for me.”

The young girl credited karate for teaching her determination and discipline, which gave her the courage to be part of the United States Air Force Auxiliary Civil Air Patrol.
