But itís still impressive to hear about young Arfa Karim Randhawa, aged 10, who has become the youngest person to be certified as a Microsoft engineer. Yes, 10. You did read that correctly.
After first discovering computers at the age of five Randhawa pestered her father for a PC. She has been accepted into Pakistan's Applied Technologies advanced computer institute.
Randhawa is now a Microsoft Certified Application Developer but plans to become a Microsoft Certified Solution Developer, which involves building programs into broader systems for business.
Arfa, who is from Faisalabad in Pakistan, passed her Microsoft Certified Professional examinations last year. Her future plans include Harvard, or a career at Microsoft.
