Muhammad Humza Shahzad is another Pakistani computer prodigy, who has earned the title of being the youngest Microsoft Office Professional, at the age of 6. Humza currently lives in London with his parents, Asim Shahzad and Seemab Asim. Humza moved to England in 2011 when his father, Asim, got a job as a Senior Development Manager at a Multinational IT Company in London.
Microsoft Certification requires a candidate to score 700 points to clear the examination. Humza scored 757 points at the exam, which he took at the Microsoft Institute in London.
Humza will be considered the youngest Microsoft Office Professional and second youngest Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP). The youngest Microsoft Certified Professional is also a Pakistani, Ayan Qureshi, who cleared the examination at the age of 5.
The Microsoft Certified Professional Certification covers a broad range of Microsoft Technologies such as Windows installation, configuration, network management, etc. But what distinguishes Humza from other MCPs is his specialization in Microsoft Office Suite.
According to Microsoft, the candidate of this examination must be accustomed with the proper application of the primary features of Microsoft Office Suite and demonstrate the same in the exam. The candidate must be able to use Microsoft Office for various purposes such as editing 500-1000 words document, creating reports, making tables and multi-column newsletters to name a few.
Humza is a student of class one at a local school where his teachers are proud of his achievement and still cannot believe that their pupil has cleared this exam. His father explained that previously MCP examinations used to be very simple and MCQs based, but now the format of examinations has changed dramatically. Instead of MCQs, the candidates are asked to create a complete Word Project by applying various tools and techniques. The new format makes it difficult to pass the examination without having a complete grip on the product itself.
According to his parents, 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 considered Humza a star child in his class.
Humza’s parents are overwhelmed about their son’s achievement and are glad that he has achieved something that has a place in history at a very young age. The prodigy not only made his parents, but the entire country proud that highlights the positive side of Pakistan.
