Pakistan is blessed with great talent. We all are well familiar with Arfa Karim-the tech genius from Faisalabad; who became the youngest Microsoft Certified Professional at the age of 9. Unfortunately, we lost Arfa at a very young age but she actually paved the way for more computer prodigies who are making our country proud at international level.
Aftrer Arfa Karim, now Muhammad Humza Shahzad is another young talent, who became the youngest Microsoft Office Professional, at the age of 6. He is presently living in England. The Microsoft Certification criteria is to score 700 points to clear the exam and luckily Humza scored 757/700 in the exam at the Microsoft Institute in London.
Hence, Humza achieved the title of youngest Microsoft Office Professional and second youngest Microsoft Certified Professional.
Hamza’s Educational Background:
Humza is a student of class one at a local school where his teachers are very proud of his achievement. His father explained that:
“Previously MCP exams used to be very simple and MCQs based, but the format of exams have changed dramatically. Instead of MCQs, the candidates are asked to create a complete Word Project by applying various tools and techniques. The new exam format makes it difficult to pass the exam without having a complete grip on the product itself.”
He further added that:
“It took more than 6 months to prepare their son for the exam and for them, the true inspiration was Arfa Karim. Humza started taking interest in technology when he was only 2 years old and got his first computer 6 months later. He has always been very observant in daily life from the start. He started solving complex puzzles at an early age. Not only that but he also has a remarkable academic record as well. His teachers also said that Humza was always the star child in his class.”
The genius Humza has not only made his parents, but the entire nation proud.
