Mark Zuckerberg, the person who changed the way we socialise and interact with people around us, was awarded his Harvard degree on 25 May 2017, 12 years after he dropped out of college.

Zuckerberg dropped out in 2005 to work full time on his college project ‘Facebook’, after which he became one of the university dropouts who became millionaires.

Facebook was born in his college dormitory in 2004 and he dropped out after it became a huge success.

Zuckerberg finally completed his course and got the degree after 12 long years.

Zuckerberg also made the commencement speech where he talked about his Harvard memories, ideas, equality and more.

Ideas don’t come out fully formed. They only become clear as you work on them. You just have to get started. If I had to know everything about connecting people before I got started, I never would have built Facebook.

He also posted on Facebook saying how important this speech was for him and how happy he is.

Here are some pictures from the event.
