Mohammad El Mir is a 13-year-old Lebanese math genius from Tripoli. In its recent one-minute-video, BBC called him The Human Calculator. When he was young, Mohammad discovered that he has amazing memory capacities. The young math-enthusiast used his analytical skills to win three world titles. He won the Junior Mental Calculation World Championship in 2014. Like most kids and teenagers who are brilliant at mental calculation, Mohammad uses Japanese abacus for training. In fact, a lot of centers that teach mental arithmetic for kids started opening recently in Lebanon due to high demand. Mohammad wants everyone to believe in themselves and their unique talents because strength lies in differences.
