SWAT: A 13-year-old software and website developer from Swat, who recently received a certificate of recognition from an international software organization, has pledged to become an expert in artificial intelligence.
Inspired by the late Arfa Karim, the youngest Microsoft Certified Professional, Marwan Khan, a seventh grader at SPS College Swat, is a self-taught software and website developer. He has developed several websites and computer games.
During the Covid-19 lockdown in the country, he developed a website so that his classmates and teachers could continue their studies without any hindrance.
Back when his other classmates were busy playing mobile games, Marwan was learning to code.
He said he was thinking of developing a website so that he and his classmates could properly study online when his school was closed during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Marwan also earned a certificate of recognition from BYJU’S Future School, an online learning platform for students, when he successfully developed a game through coding. “I was watching cartoons online in which I saw an advertisement for a coding course. I applied for the course and took courses from international trainers. After the training, the trainers charged me to create a game by coding,” he said and added that he had developed a badminton game, which was more advanced than the task assigned to him.
“When they received my created game, they were happy and gave me a certificate and eight stars. It was a very proud moment for me to receive recognition from an international coding organization,” he said. declared.
Marwan said he has a great passion for computer coding and software development and not only wants to introduce innovative approaches in web development but also make a name for himself in artificial intelligence.
