Earlier today, at the prestigious graduation event at Havard University, Mark Zuckerberg, founder of social media giant Facebook, got an honorary degree from Harvard University.
The degree was very important to the 31-year old, who dropped out of the institution in his sophomore year to start the social network.
He shared a photo with his parents and his degree certificate in his hands and captioned it “Mom, I always told you I’d come back and get my degree.”
Zuckerberg, who teared up while delivering the speech, spoke about purpose and why finding your purpose as a millennial isn’t enough. “The challenge for our generation is to create a world where every single person has a sense of purpose. That’s the key to true happiness, and the only way we’ll keep our society moving forward,” Zuckerberg said in a Facebook post.
