Freddie Figgers was born 30 years ago in Quincy, Florida. Right after he came into this world, he was abandoned by his mother in a dumpster. Two days later, he was adopted by Nathan and Betty Figgers. Since he was abandoned in a dumpster, he might not amount to much, right? Wrong.
When he was nine years old, he got his first computer. It was broken, but he fixed it. At 12, he was already working as a computer technician. At 15, he started a cloud computing company. When his Dad was diagnosed with Alzheimers, Freddie built a shoe for him with a GPS tracker and two-way communication. The program he made for his Dad was very successful, and a company reached out to Freddie and bought his program for $2.2 million. Apparently, being born without a silver spoon need not darken anyone's future.
