Kozhikode (Kerala), June 28 (ANI): A nine-year-old girl from Kozhikode district is being credited as the youngest web designer in the state for working out the website of the Bar Council of Kerala.
Shreelaxmi Suresh, the daughter of an advocate, has already designed and developed more than 10 websites.
The latest website launched by Shreelaxmi, www.barcouncilkerala.com is aimed at updating people on legal matters and helping poor people by providing free legal aid through the website.
"It was indeed great pleasure in seeing her (Shreelaxmi Suresh), interacting with her and really watching her performance in the IT field. There is no limit to what she can achieve. That's what I feel and I am sure she will achieve glory and will cross all the world records in this field," said Justice Kurien Joseph of the Kerala High Court.
When aged just eight, Shreelaxmi designed the official website of her own school apart from another website for deaf people and a Malyalam news website for kids.
"When I was small, I was so interested in doing computers. So when I was in LKG (Lower Kindergarten), I used to draw pictures and paint. Later I used to type alphabets on notepad. Then one day my dad showed me one news cut of a boy who designed a website of his own. So I thought that I too can do a website. My dad knows its basics. So I told him that I do want to study and my dad taught me web designing," said Shreelaxmi Suresh.
She has won several National and International Awards for her excellence in web designing.
Sreelakshmi is the only member of the Association of American Webmasters, under the age of 18.
The Association of American Webmasters honoured her by giving their membership along with their highest award for excellence in web designing, the Gold Web Award including the National Child Award for Exceptional Achievement 2008 and the highest award in India for Children instituted by Government of India.
Sreelakshmi Suresh has been appointed as the Brand Ambassador of InfoGroup, a group of companies and Director of YGlobes Technologies. She has also started her own web designing company, eDesign, wherein she is the 'Chief Executive Officer'. (ANI)
