The Local Seattle
By Daniel Heacock
Have you heard of Bill Gates? He was born October 28th 1955 Seattle, Washington. His parents were William H. Gates and Mary M. Gates. When he was in middle school he aimed to be a billionaire at the age of 30 and was bragging to his teachers that he would be a billionaire at the age of 30 but became a billionaire at the age of 31. When he was in collage he dropped out after a couple years so he didn’t get his college degree.
When he became a billionaire he made a company called Microsoft and that’s how he made all his money. He sold his first computer program at the age of 17. After a couple years of working at Microsoft he got banned from Computer Center Corporation. He has got arrested twice for going over the speed limit and driving without a license and two years later he got arrested for the same thing besides he ran a stop sign.
Bill Gates is the richest man on earth. As a kid he told everyone that he was going to be a billionaire and kids teased of the song Billionaire. So once he got older he he changed his name from William H. Gates III to Bill H. Gates. He also went to England and received a knighthood from the Queen of England.
