Bill Gates
Where was Bill Gates born?
Bill Gates was born on October 28, 1955 in Seattle. He grew up in an upper middle class family with two sisters. He attended Lakeside school and he had very good marks. He began to show interest in computer programming at age 13.
Who is Bill Gates?
Where does Bill Gates live now?
Bill Gates went to Harvard and successfully graduated. He currently lives in San Diego with his wife Melinda Gates. Bill and Melinda Gates have the biggest private foundation in the world. As of May 16, 2013 Bill Gates had donated 28 billion dollars to the "Bill and Melinda Gates foundation". They are trying to enhance healthcare and reduce extreme poverty. They also want to expand educational opportunity and access information technology. Since January 13, 2014 India has gone 3 years without wild polio virus, thanks to Bill Gates. Bill went to India to help give oral vaccines to kids.
William Henry Gates also knows as Bill Gates was the founder of Microsoft. Microsoft is a multi billion dollar computer company that was created on April 4, 1975.
Bill Gates has really been inspired by Warren Buffet who is a philanthropist as well. They are close friends and they are both business men. Warren Buffet was born August 30, 1930 in Omaha, Nebraska. He started his first business at age 13 and has been very successful ever since. In 2006, Warren announced he would donate his entire fortune away to charity (62 bill).
If you were born poor its not your mistake, but if you die poor its definitely your mistake.
-Bill Gates
Even though Bill Gates is very rich he still has some challenges. For example, he must chose the right organizational people and scientists to figure out the problem. He doesn't just throw money in when they need it, he will solve the problem so it doesn't keep coming back. Bill Gates reminds me of the saying "Give a man a fish feed him for a day, teach a man to fish feed him for a life time". That is Bill Gates main challenge.
Bill Gates has saved so many lives and helped countless people. I'm sure if any of us had that much money we would try to do the same thing. But the thing about Bill Gates is he used that money in such smart ways. He never just gave his money to a charity and expect it to make its way there, he would make sure he knew where the money was going and how it was getting there. His money never went to waste. He always knew what to do and when to give. Bill Gates works very hard on everything he approaches and always gives 100%, that's why I chose him.
