Death of Arfa Karim, the world’s youngest Microsoft Professional (MCP) at an early age, was a tragedy for the whole nation and her extraordinary contribution in the field of IT will be a role model for the younger generation.
“I personally know Arfa Karim as she visited me with her father when I was Chairman of HEC. Arfa wanted to take guidance about opting for a suitable field when she was student of A level,” D. Atta recalled while talking to the media here.
Arfa Karim was an extraordinary bright girl and was curious to explore the things but “we lost her at very early age”, he said.
“We are destroying the capabilities of such intelligent students, depriving them from getting quality education and career opportunities,” he regretted.
Arfa has earned the Fatima Jinnah Gold Medal in the field of science and technology and the Salam Pakistan Youth Award in 2005 for her achievements. Arfa is also the youngest recipient of the President’s Award for Pride of Performance.
Arfa also earned her first flight certificate by flying a plane at a flying club in Dubai at the age of 10, and was invited by Microsoft in 2006 to be a keynote speaker at the Tech-Ed Developers Conference, where she was the only Pakistani among over 5,000 developers.
