Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg finally takes home Harvard degree after 12 years

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg finally got his honorary degree from Harvard University after 12 years, on Thursday. During the graduation ceremony, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said, "Not only create new jobs, but create a new sense of purpose."

As reported by BBC, the Facebook CEO and famous college dropout left the Ivy League university 12 years ago to found the social network. Zuckerberg not just collected his honorary doctor of laws degree during Harvard's 366th graduation ceremony but also gave heartwarming graduation speech during the event. Moreover, all other graduates present were moved by his mesmerizing words, as he showed a career path to them.

"To keep our society moving forward, we have a generational challenge - to not only create new jobs, but create a renewed sense of purpose," said Zuckerberg.

The 33-year-old also did a Facebook Live broadcast from his old dorm room. "This is literally where I sat," he said.

Here are 5 excerpts from his speech:

“Let’s face it, you accomplished something I never could. If I get through this speech today, it’ll be the first time I actually finish something here at Harvard”

“Ideas don’t come fully formed. They only become clear as you work on them. You just have to get started. If I had to know everything about connecting people before I got started, I never would have built Facebook.”

“It’s really good to be idealistic. But be prepared to be misunderstood. Anyone working on a big vision is going to get called crazy, even if you end up right.”

“Every generation expands its definition of equality. Previous generation fought for the vote and civil rights. They had the New Deal and Great Society. And now it’s time for our generation to define a new social contract.”

“We should explore ideas like universal basic income to make sure that everyone has a cushion to try new ideas. We’re all going to change jobs and roles of many times, so we need affordable child care to get to work and health care that’s not tied to one employer.”
