Mark Elliot Zuckerberg was born on May 14, 1984, in White Plains New York. He was always interested in computers and the Internet. His parents Karen and Edward Zuckerberg noticed that, so they hired a private tutor to teach him everything he wanted to know about computers. He learned a lot from his tutor, but he also learned a lot by himself.
Mark attended Ardsley High School and he was the best student there. After just three years he transferred to the private school Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire. At his new high school, he won prizes in mathematics, astronomy, physics and classical studies. But he was still interested in computers and he first started to make mini-games and messaging system out of Atari software.
By the time he was about to go to college he was already a prodigy in programming. On his application for college, Zuckerberg stated that he could read and write French, Hebrew, Latin, and ancient Greek. He was, of course, accepted to Harvard University.
And when he was only 19, he co-founded Facebook, from his dorm room, while attending Harvard.
Zuckerberg’s career started when he was still in college and while he was still young. He made a social media site that was first called The Facebook, and he made it for fun. But the site became so popular and it was spreading like wildfire on the campus.
He and his co-founders wanted to make something big and they decided to make Facebook available for the whole world, and that’s the reason why Mark is so rich and successful today. He was thinking globally. By 2004, a million users were using Facebook.
Zuckerberg decided to drop out of college and focus on his new favorite project, and he made his first million when he was just 22. The next year, at the age of 23, he became the world’s youngest self-made billionaire. And when the company went public he made the big bucks.
But he still managed to receive an honorary degree from Harvard in 2017.
