Pakistan is blessed with thousands of talented and extremely intellectual talent, signalling towards a bright future for the country. We don’t have to travel too far back in time to realise the amazing accomplishments of its young talent. In fact the last few years have been surprisingly outstanding for its achievers, and it’s clear that the new generation is pioneering the future success of Pakistan. One such example of outstanding achievers, are the Syedain siblings, hailing from Gujranwala. They have done Pakistan proud by becoming the youngest Microsoft Certified Professionals in the world.
These world’s youngest certified professionals have the following certifications:
- Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP)
- Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE)
- Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA)
Born on 1st June 2002, Rooma became the world’s youngest Microsoft Certified professional. She gained and achieved many of the Microsoft certified modules, including the Microsoft Certified Information technology professional, Microsoft Certified Technology Specialists and Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate, along with 15 months experience in the networking field.
Rooma’s younger brother, Inam Ali Syedain, has taken another leap forward to beat his sister’s record as the world’s youngest Microsoft Professional of the world. He is the world target record holder, a Microsoft certified Information technology professional, also becoming a Microsoft certified technology specialist and Microsoft certified Solutions Associate.
He is looking towards a future learning hardware programming and manufacturing, along with desiring to build Pakistan’s first space ship and building the world’s greatest super computer.
However the youngest of the Syedain siblings could not be left behind and had to achieve newer heights by beating his brother and sister to become the world’s youngest Microsoft Certified Professional at the age of 8. Subhan Ali Syedain passed the certification on the first attempt while studying in Class 1, going on to become a Microsoft record-holder (at the age of 7 years, 08 months and 27 days.) – an Information Technology Professional and Solutions Associate.
Their achievements have led to both national and international interest, and the 3 youngsters have attained much-earned respect and acknowledgement. Their efforts have also been recognised and have been rewarded by Pakistan’s Prime Minister. The Prime Minister has awarded them scholarships for their entire educational journey, helping to achieve the goal they have set themselves.
Rooma and her brothers however realise that becoming record holders of this calibre, they have honoured their country, and allowed Pakistan’s hidden talent to be recognised all over the world. They have vowed to help better shape the future of Pakistan, hoping that each child is able to fulfil their full potential and take the country forward into a brighter future.
A brief reflection of their competencies are as follows:
- Mr. Subhan Ali Syedain, became Microsoft Certified IT Professional at the age of 07 years, 08 months and 27 days (the World’s Youngest Microsoft Certified IT Professional). He was quite sharp in responding to questions concerning the working of router, DNS etc. He is the only one among his siblings who passed the certification on the first attempt. Seems intelligent. He is not only practically competent in Windows Server 2008 but he also has knowledge about different concepts of networking. He aims to become a software developer in future.
- Mr. Inaam Ali Syedain, brother of Ms. Rooma Syedian, 09 years old is studying in class three. He is capable to perform installation MS Windows and other topics studied during MCITP. He has interest in computer hardware, robots and satellites.Ms. Rooma Syedain, a 10 year old, student of class four passed the certification in second attempt.

Assessing the young IT professionals analytically, It is believed that these young professionals, given the right opportunities and support would greatly benefit Pakistan. To appreciate their achievements and help them in their future excellence, it is recommended that Honorable Prime Minister of Islamic Republic of Pakistan may please:
1. Award Scholarship (say Rs 10,000 for each child) with MoIT/National ICT R&D Fund to cover their educational expense till the completion of their master degree.
2. Announce some cash award (say Rs. 100,000) as a token of appreciation for Subhan Syedain being known youngest Microsoft Certified IT Professional.
