Karachi: Following the foot steps of Arfa Karim, who became the world’s youngest Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) at the age of nine in 2005, another talented Pakistani student Shafeh Thubani has become a world’s youngest Microsoft Certified at the age of 8, report said on Wednesday.
Shafeh says earlier it was difficult for him but now he feels it quite easy.
Arfa Karim rose to international fame when she became the youngest MCP at the age of nine in 2005 but died in February this year after complications resulting from an epileptic stroke.
“We were impressed from Arfa Karim but we never forced Shafeh to this. He did what he wanted to do,” Geo TV quoted Shafeh’s parents as saying.
The Microsoft Certified award is a title given to those who master the company’s program and is often used by adults to further their careers in the tech field.
