I am not emotional or logical. I am a little of both, however, I am innovative, entrepreneurial, forward thinking, helpful, inventive, oriented, co-operative and a leader. I am also curious and analytical. Those who have listened to me, have done well for themselves. When I got into this kind of life, I had two goals. Freedom and making a difference in the world. My father, told me about the internet when I was very little; I have been using computers for a long time and Apple since I was eleven years old. I love technology and I am a digital age kid!
My first invention, Facebook, came about while I was in high school. In 2002, on my DELL laptop and my dial up connection, I emailed YALE, NYU and HARVARD, with the Facebook idea. Harvard business school took my idea. I am glad that is happened. I wanted to connect everyone in the world! I love people and communication. I am the INVENTOR and Mark Zuckerberg is the founder and programmer. I cannot code. This is why I reached out to Harvard. As you can see in the Facebook movie, one of the first countries that Facebook was in, is Bosnia. My background is Bosnian Slovenian.
While I was living in Germany I met Mark Zuckerberg's family.
So, how did I come up with the idea of Facebook? Or Uber or GoGet or Whisper? Well, I wanted something to exist that would be of value and have a good purpose. Facebook, I invented because I didn't want to go to my high school formal in my final year, without knowing who was who there. I wanted to know people before I arrived. I never went to the formal, and Facebook didn't exist until later. However, I got busy! Busy being productive and inventing. I stayed at home and started writing down ideas and business plans of what I wanted to exist in the world. For me, it was simple. Make a difference, communicate with like minded people and make is all happen!
As for my friends that went to the high school formal? They spent money on fancy clothes, fancy food and some drank a lot! I got to live the life I wanted. I got the value in life that I wanted. I am happy.
A big thank you to Mark and Harvard Business School for taking on my idea!
Every day, I think of a new way of improving the world and making a difference. This is the life that I am happy to live.
