Aarifa Karim, a Pakistani girl from Faisalabad who became the world’s youngest Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) in 2004 at the age of nine, is in a critical condition in a hospital, Express News reported on Thursday.

The doctors say that Karim had a heart attack which affected her brain, causing her to slip into a coma.

Karim had earned the Fatima Jinnah gold medal and Salam Pakistan Youth Award in 2005 over her achievement.

She was also invited to the Microsoft Headquarters in the US by Bill Gates for being the World’s youngest MCP.

Karim also earned her first flight certificate by flying a plane at a flying club in Dubai at the age of 10, and was invited by Microsoft in 2006 to be a key-note speaker at the Tech-Ed Developers Conference, where she was the only Pakistani among over 5,000 developers.

She is currently 16 years old and is studying at Lahore Grammar School Paragon Campus.
