Sorry about the rumored post few minutes ago by us, Aarfa karim, youngest microsoft certified professional is still alive but in hospital.
Please pray for her health
Arfa died eventually. She lived for 16 years and proved herself to be extraordinary from the rest of people around her!
She was born on 2nd February 1995 and died on 14th January 2012.
Arfa became the youngest MCP (microsoft certified professional) in 2004 when she was just 9 years old! She kept the title till 2008 when it was broken by another brilliant young kid!
Arfa Karim represented Pakistan on different forums internationally including TechEd Developers Conference.
Arfa was awarded the presidents award for Pride of Performance too.
A science park was named after her in lahore too, Arfa Software Technology Park.
Bill Gates invited her to Microsoft Headquarters in U.S too!
What a gem she was!
Although extraordinary at her time, her record was broken by several other genius kids, including a 5 years old! The record was broken by:
- Babar Iqbal at age of 9 years in 2006.
- Ayan Qureshi at age of 5 in 2014!
And the legacy goes on!
