Priscilla Chan co founder of Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) is on a mission to change the world.
We all know her as the first lady of Facebook. The humble wife of Mark Zuckerberg who is also a Doctor by profession.
She cares immensely with people. At just 33 years old she leads CZI.
The Zuckerberg Family committed 99% of their wealth on this selfless venture. Her profile is rising not because of who she is married to. But what she is striving to accomplish.
The mission of CZI is to advance human potentials and promoting equal opportunity while curing preventing and managing all disease by the end of century.
Max their child knows that she is working at CZI and Dad is working at a bookstore because he thought that Facebook is a book store.
They met at a Harvard Fraternity party. Mark’s friends are throwing him a party because they were worried that he might be kicked out in school.
The real first date was after a week. They went on a dinner and watch a movie together.
Priscilla was born to an immigrant parents who came from Saigon Vietnam and lived in low income suburbs of Massachusetts.
In Highschool she is a genius and went to Harvard for college. When she arrived in Harvard things change. Surrounded by way more smart students, she felt like she doesn’t fit in.
Having a child of their own gave them a realization that important things are limited. Working that your family is safe and healthy is very important.
Mark and her is still living a simple life. Far from the billion dollars’ income of Facebook. They found real happiness not on the wealth that they have as a family.
Life is beautiful and striving to make the world a better place is there mission.
