Virginia Beach Teen Best at MS Word

The United States Microsoft Word Master is right here in Hampton Roads! Michelle Wu, a 16-year-old from Virginia Beach, was named best in the U.S. at MS Word.

She first earned certification in 2013 from Certiport at Princess Anne High School, and then was invited to compete against 85 other finalists in Orlando last week.

Michelle beat out more than 430,000 students who entered the competition on a timed exam to demonstrate Word expertise.  As a winner, Michelle will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the Microsoft Office Specialist World Championship in August in Dallas, Texas. There she will compete with students from more than 30 countries.

Good luck at the World Championships Michelle!
