Marco Calasan, The Youngest Microsoft Engineer
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
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.
