Amna Amir Shehzad, a 10-year-old from Karachi, defies social expectations and age stereotypes. She not only works toward her goal of becoming a data scientist, but she also shares her expertise by working as an assistant professor at Karachi University.

The Saylani Techno Kids program introduced Amna to technology at a young age, laying the groundwork for her quick development. The young prodigy became proficient in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript very quickly, and even dabbled in hosting on sites like GitHub and Firebase. Her perseverance paid off when she earned the third spot in the city for the Rechnokids program, where she dove into a variety of tech courses like Canva, Adobe Suite, and Microsoft Office Suite.

Amna’s talent wasn’t overlooked despite her youth. She caught the attention of her teacher and sister after finishing an HTML task in a speedy manner. This resulted in an unexpected internship offer, which ultimately led to employment at Karachi University as an assistant professor. She attends traditional school and Saylani’s online courses while concurrently continuing her technical training at software companies connected to the university.

Amna has goals that go beyond her own accomplishments. She wants to open up technology education to everyone, especially kids from middle-class and lower-middle-class families. Her commitment to closing the socioeconomic technology gap is evidence of her empathy and desire to empower young people.

Amna’s story serves as an encouraging example of how age need not be a barrier to making a positive impact in the fields of technology and education, as she continues to excel in both her teaching role and her own learning journey.
