Niazi: A child prodigy 

Niazi was introduced to the concept of self-learning at an early age of 11. He started taking online courses, according to him he has taken 25 various courses in different subjects from platforms like Coursera, reported BBC.

“When I was a child I used to watch documentaries on science with my grandfather and read books on mathematics and other science subjects,” says Mr Niazi.

Mr. Niazi aims big – “I would love to win another Nobel Prize for Pakistan” – and he thinks bigger – “Isaac Newton was 17 when his first paper was published; I was 16 when I officially received my acceptance letter.” He expressed these views while talking to the BBC during his interview.
