Losing her arm led to many things. Days after the incident she had to go through many surgeries, and many painful recoveries. She would worry about the future and if she had to give up what she loved. Although Bethany wanted to fight and try and surf again she was still faced with many difficulties such as worrying too much about sharks, trying to surf with one arm and people's reactions. Bethany was put through all of this pain because of one shark, but the shark didn't stop her. Bethany knew if she wanted something she had to fight for it. "One of the most beautiful things that came from the accident is how it has allowed me to see that i can overcome difficult things." -Bethany Hamilton (experience life)
What encouraged Bill?Bill Gates grew up in a warming household with loving parents and siblings. At school Bill realized he had an interest in computers. later in Bill's life he was accepted into Harvard.
Why did Bill drop out of Harvard?
Bill went to Harvard, going into law. When he was at school he spent more time on the computers than in a lab. Gates passed, on barley any sleep and barley any studying. Gates had a friend named Paul Allen, who dropped out of school and moved to Boston. Bill went to visit him and they both checked out a computer kit. They were both fascinated wiyh what a computer could create. Gates and Allen contacted the owner of the company, the boys said they were creating a new software. MITS (company) were willing to try it out. Bill spent months writing the new software in the Harvard lab. It was a success. MITS hired Allen, Bill soon left Harvard to work with him. They formed a partnership called Micro-soft.
Microsoft and it's success
The Microsoft company started off shaky and didn't meet their overheads. Although basic Microsoft was popular, only about 10% of people who used it actually paid for it. Gates thought that "free" software would prevent quality software from being made. Bill wrote a letter about his beliefs, although his letters was unpopular he still fought. Allen and bill sued MITS to retain their software rights. Microsoft was moved to Washington, there all the 25 employees had responsibilities. Gates placed himself at the head of this company, which later earned $2.5 million. As the company grew other popular companies began to grow too. IBM (company) was looking for software that would work on PC, they then looked towards Microsoft. The problem was that Microsoft hadn't made the basic operating system that could run on IBM's computers, but Microsoft didn't tell IBM about this when they made a deal with them. When IBM found out they sued Microsoft, but Microsoft didn't admit to doing anything wrong. Gates had to work for IBM PC he delivered it for $50,000. Later Microsoft released a new software, witch allowed Microsoft to operate on Apple machines. Microsoft's growth exploded enormously, it was being used worldwide, Revenue shot up millions of dollars. Microsoft continues to grow today!Thanks for Bill Gates not giving up and persevering the computer you are on right now probably runs the amazing Bill Gate's invention... Microsoft.
