Waqas Ali has bagged a bronze medal for PowerPoint 2013 at the Microsoft Office Specialist World Championship 2015 held in Dallas, Texas. Ali self financed his trip and was the only participant from Pakistan at the 14th MOSWC. The final round saw 145 students from 47 countries battling it out for the top slots.
“This was the first time for Pakistan, I was the only one, and I’ve won it. In fact, no – this is not my win; this is the win of my family, TEC Education Foundation, my friends, for all their massive support.”, said Ali.
Certiport, the test delivery solution provider that organised the event, awarded Ali with a scholarship worth $1,500, a medal, a trophy and Microsoft products.
“More than 1.2 billion people use Office worldwide, and these students have taken the time to set themselves apart as the best of the best,” said Alison Cunard, general manager of Learning Experiences at Microsoft.
