A Pakistani boy became the youngest person to qualify as a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist, when he passed the rigorous exam at just 8 years old. According to the Huffington Post, Shafay Thobani started training for the exam when he was 7-years-old. He attended regular school classes from 7:30 am to 1:30 p.m and then headed to his father's office for specialized computer classes from until 8:30 p.m. Amidst his demanding training, Thobani still found time to be a typical 7-year-old -- his father set up special areas for chess, darts and arcade games in his high-tech computer lab. Since Thobani passed Microsoft's test with a 91 percent score, he has set his sights on something greater: helping poor people in Pakistan and meeting Bill Gates.
