The Bill Gates story

Bill Gates needs no introduction and is probably a hero and role model for many of the people reading this. His road to riches began when he was a tech-obsessed 13-year-old student at Lakeside School in Seattle, Washington. As Gates recalled in a 2005 speech, the school’s “mothers club came up with the money to buy a teletype that connected over the phone lines with a GE time-sharing computer.”
