Childhood and Studies
Elon grew up in South Africa, from an engineer father and a nutritionist mother, he very quickly started reading many books. At the age of 12, he programmed his first video game called ‘Blastar’ which he sold to ‘PC and Office Technology’ magazine for a value of $ 500.
As a teenager, the young man already dreams of studying in the United States and shortly before his 18th birthday, he emigrated to Canada. He quickly obtained Canadian nationality from his mother, born Canadian.
At the age of 19, he began to study at ‘Queen’s University’ in Kingston – Ontario where he spent 2 years which he financed through odd jobs. In 1992 he moved to the United States to study at the ‘Wharton School’of Philadephie where he obtained a scholarship. He will study there for 3 years and will be graduated in business and physics.
In 1995, he moved to California where Stanford University offered him a scholarship to pursue a doctorate in energetic physics. But Elon, not wanting to devote more time to studies, he suspends his doctorate overtaken by his entrepreneurial fever and his futuristic ideas of renewable energies and space travel as stated in https://www.hometownstation.com/santa-clarita-news/use-inventhelp-to-kick-start-your-career-as-an-inventor-today-335441.
The people with whom he discusses his plans will tell him that he is crazy and that he will not complete any of his goals. Elon does not let himself be discouraged, however, and the future will prove to them that they were wrong not to trust him.
