Mark Zuckerberg Is A Harvard Dropout
The very famous Mark Zuckerberg was once a student at Harvard University. According to Fortune, Zuckerberg opted to drop out his studies being a sophomore student in the in 2006 to move to Palo Alto, California. From there, he rebranded and eventually launched the most popular social network, the Facebook.
Harvard president Drew Faust believes that some inventions in this modern times can rival Facebook especially on how people around the world interact with one another. He also said that some individuals can compete with Zuckerberg in his drive to change the world by "the innovative use of technology" and "his commitment to advance science." Faust also said that Zuckerberg’s leadership has profoundly changed the nature of social engagement.
Bill Gates Is Also A Harvard Dropout
According to The Verge, Bill Gates is also a Harvard dropout. He left the University after just two years to co-found the Microsoft Company with Paul Allen. Most announcements regarding Harvard's commencement speeches are sober affairs. However, the university has released a video on YouTube to make this commencement speech more exciting for the audience.
The video shows Zuckerberg and Gates talking to each other seriously. The shoot is supposed to be perfectly a natural conversation in which Zuckerberg grabs his phone then suddenly gets invited to be the next Harvard's commencement speaker. And then, he will ask Gates to give him ideas and pieces of advice about what to say on the event.
With that, the two becomes quite close. Gates even left a comment on Zuckerberg’s Facebook post telling him, “Always happy to help, Mark. Good luck on your speech." Gates also hope for the Facebook's CEO to earn an honorary degree to help him get his dream job.
