Arfa Karim, once world’s youngest Microsoft Certified Professional, passes away

News Pakistan is reporting that Arfa Karim, who became what was then the world’s youngest Microsoft Certified Professional at age 9 seven years ago, has died at 16.

She suffered an epileptic seizure and cardiac arrest a few weeks ago and died today in a Lahore hospital, News Pakistan reported.

Only a few days ago, news outlets were reporting that Microsoft chairman Bill Gates had contacted Karim’s parents, offering to pay for her medical treatment in the U.S.

Karim had met Gates when she visited the Microsoft campus in Redmond in 2005 when she was 10.

The designation of Microsoft Certified Professional is given to those outside the company who demonstrate comprehensive proficiency with Microsoft technologies.
