Uzair Abdullah, a 12-year-old genius from Karachi, has become the youngest charter member in the certification of Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE) in cloud platform and infrastructure. Uzair has completed six Microsoft-certified courses within six months of starting the courses.
Uzair, who is currently enrolled in class eight at Beaconhouse School System in Karachi, developed an interest in computers and information technology over time. Though his parents aren’t tech-savvy, Uzair latched onto his interest in computers growing up in Kenya and Pakistan, picking up skills from different places. Uzair returned home to Gujranwala in June 2015 after spending seven years in Kenya along with his family.
Uzair’s mother, Ambreen Abdullah, said in an interview:
“We always wanted him to do such courses to enhance his abilities in his field of interest. A tutor used to teach him at home during his stay in Gujranwala where he did not go to school. With the help of tuition he appeared in the board examinations of class eight.”
Uzair enrolled himself for Microsoft course and went to appear for examinations in Peshawar, which had the closest Microsoft center.
