I'm 23 and I want to take the PMP exam. All my workmates are telling that I'm too young for this certification and that my PMP application will never go through. Is there any age restriction for taking the PMP exam and becoming a PMP certified project manager?

No, otherwise this would be called age discrimination, and it's illegal in the US. Although I have to say that at the age of 23, you are very young to have a university degree and posses the 4,500 hours of project management experience required to pass the PMP (in case you don't have a university degree you will need 7,500 hours). No one starts as a project manager and PMI know that, your file will almost certainly be looked at with scrutiny.
