Marco Calasan, The Youngest Microsoft Engineer

Updated on May 24, 2010

I liked something about knowledge. Especially about kids education. You can find my several hubs about education topic. Learning comes from nature. But the important thing is how to educate children, so they felt comfort in study. We life in modern era, where we can find high technology around us. This time is totally different with my age, where I could learn computer since I was Senior High School. But now we can find many younger age, like kids mastered in computer and they can operate the computer correctly.

Through this hub I want to share about talented young boy, maybe some people said that this young boy was genius. His name is Marco Calasan, nine years old from Skopja, Macedonia. With his age right now, he became the world's youngest Microsoft Certified System. He has remarkable achievement. This little boy has four Microsoft Certified. He also wrote a book about Microsoft Window 7. We can't imagine that he can write 312 pages in his book. As we know that Microsoft is the leading brand and leading company for software industry.

He got the first Certified from Microsoft at six years old. This is an amazing achievement for the kid at his age. Most people said this is the difficult degree to achieved even for a computer engineer. Marco also worked as an information system controller for nonprofit institution to help people with disabilities. He also taught computer knowledge in English using video streaming. The Government of Macedonia allow his not attend to the school every day. "I like go to school, but I can't go every day, the lesson to easy for me, but I get something new over there" said Marco.

Marco Calasan is a student of Blaze Koneski. Like other kids he has a long curly hair and always smiling. He looks cute. He said that he was not special and has a big gift. "Like other kids, I'll forget all the knowledge about computer in my head when I played with my friend", said Marco. He can speak three languages fluently and now he is studying the forth foreign language.

Professor Elena Achkovska-Leshkovska, from the Institute of Psychology, Skopje had done some test for Calasan when he was seven years old. The professor said that Calasan brain work as a twelve year old kid. He has high emotional and social level, a great gift for the kids like Calasan.

The government asked him to give a presentation about the IPTV system. He also created IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) program. He explained how to stream high quality video to the whole of Macedonia and provide the services also. I found something interesting here, because every time she talked something, "Microsoft" word always appears in every conversation. I think he has been obsessed by the creation of Bill Bates, the founder of Microsoft. Actually he has dream, "I want to go to the United States, a place where I will get all the technical sources", said Marco.

During the interview time, like the interview by CNN, he always accompanied by his mother, Radica. She was very proud with Marco. Last month, Radica was detected breast cancer. She stayed in hospital for a week to undergo surgical removal of tumors. After arrived at home, he had printed 200 pages about healing of breast cancer. This information also contains the diet for his mother. With the big hope his mother will total cured


Marco Idol

I think we all know that computer is part of our life right now, most of us can't separated by computer. Like in the office, home work for student even internet connection. I hope this hub become our inspiration and for the kids Marco can give them new spirit or motivation to learn much more about computer technology. My next hub I want to write about computer education for kids. So wait and see. Thank you very much.

  • The Youngest Motivator

    I think we all know about motivator. Motivator is a person who give us spirit and motivation. We can find them in seminar, talk show, leadership meeting. And they usually talk about how to be success. Success in everything, like financial, married, family, career, spiritual, business, success tips, self-development management and about life lessons also. How if a motivator is a kid. Maybe it is impossible for kids become motivator. But I’ll tell you about the fact, when the kids become good motivator and many people give them two thumbs up.

      Hi, jeyaramd. Thank you very much for coming and share nice comment about the potential for people if we want to use this maximally. I agree with you about gift, though we have different ability to use the gift. I learn much from you and I hope we can use the potential inside us into good things. I really appreciated your vote.

      This is especially inspirational being a boy with such intelligence. Its very true in this case and many I am sure that the power of the human mind is really astonishing. Its a gift and we should all use it to its full potential. The normal human brain is probably not even functioning at optimum levels and yet we are doing so much. The number of neurons and synapses in the brain is unbelievable. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful and inspiring story. I feel very inspired now. Thanks. Voted up.

      What a beautiful kid! Smart and cute. How rare is that? He is obviously a Child Prodigy. Having a student like this must make being a teacher all so worthwhile. To be able to mould and influence a young mind into a fantastic success in adulthood is what teaching is all about. Well done on another cracking good Hub! You are a great hubber, prasetio! Cheers!

      Thanks for share your thought, Green Lotus. I am glad you liked this information. As a teacher I also give good support to my student, that they could be something if they want to try, like develop their talent. And the parents at home should give them support also. I think the dream will come true.

      It's so refreshing to read a story such as the one you have posted here prasetio. You are right about the importance of a good education and for children to receive support from their parents. Every child has a gift or talent that grows with nurturing. Marco's Mom is just as much an inspiration as Marco. I wish them both health and success. Thumbs up!

      Glad to read your comment, Sa'ge. You give new inspiration by your thought here. We all know that children is like a gift for their parents. And better way if the parents support their children. Give them freedom to choose what they like, if it so much fun for them. They could develop their talent like Marco did before. I hope this information useful for us.

      This is a great hub, thank you prasetio30

      I believe that children will surpass in anything that is their favorite thing to learn if given the chance to run with it. these kids like Marco are allowed to run with what they love to learn by their parents, in so doing they also excel in other areas like reading and math. a child will read well if they are reading and learning what they love. I have seen it happen so many times with a child not doing well then same child learning what they love starts to excel in reading and slowly in other areas. Learning should be fun to a child. After all is that not what being a child is. ~aloha~
