Mark Zuckerberg, founder of social media giant Facebook, today, bagged 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.
