A 14-year-old software engineer has joined Elon Musk's company SpaceX. Karen Quazi from San Francisco, USA, got the opportunity to join SpaceX after passing the company's 'Technically Challenging' and 'Fun' interviews.

Along with this, Kwazi became the youngest person to join SpaceX.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Kwazi was enrolled at Santa Clara University to study computer science and engineering at the age of 11. He is getting his degree in this subject this June.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Quazi said that his skills would help the SpaceX project to send humans to Mars.

"I'm joining the Starlink engineering team as a software engineer," Quazi wrote on LinkedIn.

In addition, Kwaji says that the company looks at his skills rather than his age to join the company.

Kwazi is moving with his mother from Flesland, California to Redmond, Washington to work on SpaceX.

Being interested in current events and news from a young age made him a curious and intelligent personality. According to his relatives, Kwaji was excited to listen to current events and news since he was two years old.

He used to tell the news he heard on the radio to his friends and teachers.

At the age of 9, he did not find schooling that difficult when he was studying in three classes. Kwaji's abilities were unusual and his parents admitted him to a community college.

He used to play various games in his free time.

He especially played games related to historical times like the Creed series and read science fiction stories written by Flip Dick. At the beginning of 2023, Kwazi posted on Instagram and said that he was preparing for the Space X interview.
