EARLY YEARS
Mark Elliot Zuckerberg was born on May 14, 1984 in Dobbs Ferry, New York. You may know him as the founding father, CEO, and creator of Facebook. His family starts off with his mom, Karen, who is a Psychiatrist. Edward, his father, is a Dentist who taught him AOU in the 1990’s. Mark has three sisters Randi (the oldest) Arielle (second oldest) and Donna, the youngest sister. Mark liked to do many things as a child; he was around 12 when he started using computers a lot. One of the things he also liked to do was to pull pranks on his two youngest sisters. He liked to prank them, not physically, but mentally. One day he turned to Randi and said, “I bet I can make Donna come upstairs in five seconds.” And she said,” Try it!” Mark rigged her laptop to announce that it would self-destruct in five seconds. While Donna was on her laptop, he activated the computers announcement. The computer said “five… four… three… two… and up the stairs she ran screaming “HIT THE DECK! HIT THE DECK, MY COMPUTER IS GOING TO BLOW UP!!” He told her what he did and she bit him. Later on, Randi, Donna, and Mark had decided to make videos. At first he wanted to make up a movie, but then they used Star Wars Trilogy but called it the “Star Wars Sill-Ogy”. Mark was Luke, Randi was Leia, and Donna was R2-D2. Mark then created something called “Zucknet”, a network that would allow his father’s dental office and their home to instant message each other. Mark had lots of friends that were artists that would come over and draw things. He would make computer games from the artwork; this was around the time he was in high school.
