I was looking around on the internet for a possible candidate to interview
for Contact Pakistan (CP). While surfing, I happened to see a letter written
to President of Pakistan for sponsorship by a young college student Bilal
Iqbal of Islamabad. In his letter, he had mentioned about his record of
being the World’s Youngest to hold various Computer/IT Related
Certifications from Microsoft, Cisco, CompTIA, CIW and BrainBench.
He had also mentioned about his record of being the only one in Pakistan to
hold some of the certifications like CompTIA Linux+ etc. I read the letter
couple of times and realized that the kid was a great achiever but had not
been given a deserving coverage and support by the Government of Pakistan
and Microsoft etc. I decided to contact, and requested him for an interview.
I sent Bilal Iqbal an e-mail and mentioned my intentions. The offer was
gladly accepted by Bilal with open heart and we decided the time and date
for the interview on net.
