Congratulating Itizaz, Eng.

May God bless our country with such achievements.”

Itizaz said that she initially joined the Little Genius Program and completed its first level, then moved to the second level, in which the focus was on mental arithmetic.

Itizaz pointed out that she was trained by a great teacher, who guided her to qualify for the event, compete keenly and win second place.
