I want to tell you a story about someone who had a vision for the future and then became an engineer.
This person was so good at what he did that it changed his life forever, helped him become more than just a billionaire – but also a superhero!
This person is Elon Musk. Born in Pretoria, South Africa, he moved to Canada when he was 17 years old and became a Canadian citizen just over twenty years ago on March 24th, 199.
At the time of his citizenship application he had already made his first billion dollars from Zip II Corporation (Zip drives).
Which makes hard disks for laptop computers as well as other devices.
He also co-founded PayPal with Max Levchin back in 1998 and what started out as an online payment system has grown into one of the world’s leading ecommerce platforms .
Processing more than $50 billion per year through partnerships like Apple Pay.
