My role model
Salman Khan is my hero ! Not the Bollywood star, but this Harvard grad, who has created a 1600+ video library which has become " the most-used educational video resource as measured by YouTube video views per day and unique users per month. " His next step is to " complement this ever-growing library with user-paced exercises--developed as an open source project--allowing the Khan Academy to become the free classroom for the World."
What do I love about him ?
1. It's the work of one person - which proves that it takes just one person to improve the world
2. He started small - without waiting for funding !
3. He dreams big !
