Two twin sisters hailing from Pakistan, Zara Khan and Zenubia Khan, have become the youngest Microsoft Power Platform Certified Professionals. What is even more astonishing is that they are both only 10 years old, making them the youngest to have the certification and the youngest twin pair in the world to pass the Power platform certification.
The Power Platform certification is meant for individuals who seek solutions for their organisations using the Microsoft Power Platform. It enables individuals to automate business processes, perform data analytics, and integrate artificial intelligence to build new solutions.
Having a background in the tech industry, their father stimulated their interest in software as he was forced to work from home during the Covid-19 lockdown. They started learning about the software from there and learned basic programming by themselves. Even after their schooling resumed they continued to build on their interest in programming and started replicating applications gaining experience from the web in their free time and building expense management solutions for their father.
That is when they decided to apply for the Power Platform certification. After preparing for six months using the material available online, the girls passed the exam with flying colours, making them the youngest Power Platform certified professionals despite not having access to mobile devices or laptops till the age of 8.
Reveling their success, the twins hope that their story inspires more kids especially girls to take up an interest in information technology.
Pakistan has a history of producing prodigies in the field.
