Think you’re good with computers? Think again.

According to his IT consultant father Asim, Ayan was introduced to computers when he was three and would spend hours each day playing with old hard drives and motherboards. Hardly the toys of the average toddler.

But Ayan, now six, has progressed at a staggering rate since his introduction to the world of computers and he has become the youngest specialist in the world after passing the Microsoft Certified Professional test.

‘The hardest challenge was explaining the language of the test to a five-year-old. But he seemed to pick it up and has a very good memory,’ said his father, Asim. There’s no doubt Ayan has a big future ahead of him.

The fledgling entrepreneur – who already has his own computer lab at home – says he wants to start his own company and set up a tech hub in the UK called E-Valley. Meanwhile, his mother Mamoona says she hopes he ‘doesn’t set a world record every day.’

‘I want him to do his best whatever he does in his life,’ she said.
