Mark Zuckerberg sets New Year challenge for himself

Facebook founder and multi -billionaire , Mark Zuckerberg , has set a New Year challenge for himself.
Last year , he learned Mandarin , which he now speaks fluently . He also ran 365 miles, built a simple Artificial Intelligence for his home, and read 25 books .
This year again , Mark has set a new challenge for himself : he wants to visit 30 American states ! He limited himself to 30 states because he had visited some states before now.
Writing on his verified Facebook account , Mark said :
“ Every year I take on a personal challenge to learn new things and grow outside of my work. In recent years , I ’ ve run 365 miles, built a simple AI for my home, read 25 books and learned Mandarin .
“ My personal challenge for 2017 is to have visited and met people in every state in the US by the end of the year. I ’ ve spent significant time in many states already , so I ’ ll need to travel to about 30 states this year to complete this challenge.
“ After a tumultuous last year , my hope for this challenge is to get out and talk to more people about how they ’ re living , working and thinking about the future .
“ Priscilla and I have enjoyed taking road trips together since we started dating . Recently , I ’ ve traveled around the world and visited many cities, and now I ’ m excited to explore more of our country and meet more people here .
“ Going into this challenge, it seems we are at a turning point in history. For decades , technology and globalization have made us more productive and connected . This has created many benefits, but for a lot of people it has also made life more challenging . This has contributed to a greater sense of division than I have felt in my lifetime . We need to find a way to change the game so it works for everyone .
“ My work is about connecting the world and giving everyone a voice . I want to personally hear more of those voices this year . It will help me lead the work at Facebook and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative so we can make the most positive impact as the world enters an important new period .
“ My trips this year will take different forms — road trips with Priscilla, stops in small towns and universities , visits to our offices across the country , meetings with teachers and scientists , and trips to fun places you recommend along the way .
“ I ’ ve enjoyed doing these challenges with our community and I ’ ll post tomorrow about how everyone around the world can join in . I ’ m looking forward to this challenge and I hope to see you out there!”
