The Microsoft Excel world championship is held every year and Kevin Dimaculangan is this year champion, with this he is the second competitor from the Team USA to win the title for the USA in a consecutive year. Kevin must be knowing all the Excel tricks and function which most of the adults don’t know during their entire lifespan.
Kevin Dimaculangan, a 15-year-old boy from Florida never thought he would win a title like this; he started Excel as a hobby about a year and a half ago and ultimately winning the title at World Excel champion at the event of Microsoft Office Specialist World Championship at Orlando, Florida. The event was managed by Certiport, a provider of IT based performance certifications exams for the Microsoft.
This event of Microsoft is held annually to challenge the competitor’s knowledge and skills about the Microsoft Office applications. Students between the age range of 13 and 22 could apply to this competition after passing the regional and national championships in respective Microsoft category. This year about 760,000 applicants around the world enter the championship hoping to win the title and in the final round, only 152 applicants made it from the 51 countries.
Kevin never started his journey of learning Excel to win the title, rather started as a hobby which he just started to picked last year only because one of his teachers used to provide prizes who ever learned certain specific function and demonstrate in the class. Seems a pretty good deal for a Bluetooth speaker for learning Excel! Kevin told his parents he wanted to enroll for the Microsoft Excel certification where he scored a perfect score and after that, he decided to go for the expert level of Microsoft Excel form there he went on to win the title of Microsoft Championship. Now Kevin is taking his eye on the PowerPoint section of the Championship.
