- A young Nigerian lady, Hauwa Ibrahim Aminu, built JupiMart and ArchiScope to help architects and online shoppers
- The lady who had both first-class and distinction in her first degree and masters respectively said she worked on the apps in school
- Many people praised her, saying they hope to have the same opportunities the lady's parents gave her
A 22-year-old Nigerian, Hauwa Ibrahim Aminu, has joined the pool of the country’s citizens who are using their academic knowledge to solve problems.
After finishing her first degree in computer science from Lancaster University in Ghana with a first-class, she proceeded to bag a master’s degree from Middlesex University, Mauritius, where she got a distinction in business information and systems management.
In an exclusive interview with Daily Trust, the young lady spoke about how she created two applications named JupiMart and ArchiScope.
Hauwa said she really loves providing solutions to people’s issues. She revealed that creating JupiMart was a way to make buyers confident of what they were shopping for online and also reduce the number of times bad goods are returned.
The developer stated that her second app, ArchiScope, was to bridge the communication gap between architects and their clients.
When asked if the feedbacks on her works have been great, she said in January 2021, a lot of architects were satisfied with what she did with the building app.
She disclosed that the support from her parents has been immense. The 22-year-old said she did not really feel the cost of building the apps because she worked on them as her BSc and MSc projects.
The brilliant Nigerian said that though none of the apps has been commercialised, she hopes they will be in the nearest future.
