In honor of Bill Gates, I did research about this hero in “Biography Today.” I chose Bill Gates because he made a successful computer system named Microsoft. After the research, I was glad I did because I learned so much about him.

Who knew such a normal beginning would give the world such a hero? He was born October 2, 1955, at Seattle, Washington. His parents are William H. Gates and Mary (Maxwell) Gates. Bill Gates is married to Melinda and is still alive.

The foundation of heroism is education. He went to the Lakeside Schools for Elementary, Middle, and High school. Then he went to Harvard University.

Hard work contributes to heroism. Some career highlights were making Microsoft. He got an award for how good he is with technology.

His importance and his most famous thing is for creating Microsoft. I think he changed the world because without him there would be no Microsoft. Also we would be using an old, outdated, hard to use processors.
