On Shyness

“If you want to do something big in your life, you must remember that shyness is only the mind…If you think shy, you act shy. If you think confident you act confident. Therefore never let shyness conquer your mind.”

The quote above is advice for life from Arfa Karim Randhawa, the computer programming prodigy who became the world’s youngest Microsoft Certified Professional at 9 years old. Sadly, she has passed away at the age of 16 after reportedly suffering an epileptic seizure and cardiac arrest.
