You Left Unfinished and Yet We Are Proud of you. R.I.P Arifa Kareem


Who’s more inspiring then Arifa Kareem. Yes I’m inspired by her aims since she came into notice at the age of 9, when she became the  the youngest Microsoft Software Engineer (MCSE) of the world. And not only me but she has astounded millions of souls around the globe by expressing her unique abilities in field of IT. Lived the life of just 16 years and accomplished so much that one cant even imagine.

She was honored the  World’s Youngest Microsoft Certified Professional. Bill Gates, the Chairman of Microsoft, invited Arfa to visit the Microsoft Headquarters in the USA in the age of 10 only. Being awarded the Fatima Jinnah gold medal by the government of Pakistan. Certified for flying the plane just at the age of 10. Worked for tech societies and and computer companies in Dubai and won many medals and awards. Also participated in Microsoft keynote session in the Tech-Ed Developers Conference held in Barcelona, in 2006.

There is a proverb that “Great things come in small packages” and Arifa was one of those who left us :(. She is the real Daughter of Pakistan and pride of our country. Genius like Arifa who was such a great poet, a singer and who had so inspiring aims for the betterment of Pakistan, are on in millions.

She had Fits attack at first, but later when she got a heart attack she went into coma. I did hear many good news about her successful surgery but Allah had already decided to take that blessed gift back which He had given us back in 1995. Today is the black day for all Pakistanis and for Arifa’s family aswell but we could not be more proud of her. I as youngster promise to Arifa’s family that one of us ( The Youth of Pakistan) will accomplish her inspiring aims and will lighten the name of Pakistan in the field of science all around the globe. So all I can say that “yet you left unfinished and yet we are proud of you”
