The back story of George Soros reflects his persistence and dedication to make it in life. For those who have heard of this name, it has been a long journey for him. Wading through the murky regime of Nazi as a child, he overcame what an ordinary human would not. George Soros hails from Hungary. He suffered intolerance as a child. During the attack, his father did a great job by falsifying their identity. Soros and the father also saved neighbors from being assassinated.
After the regime, Soros flee to London in search of better pastures. He joined the London School of Economics. He loved philosophy and the contributions of Karl Popper. Popper was a major contributor to this discipline. He proposed the theory of humanity and the input of Open Societies. As a role model and humanist, he inspired many with Soros being one of them. Soros worked as a part time waiter. He also worked for the railway as an attendant. That is how he financed his education. Being a hard working student, he passed exams and focused on career seeking in the job industry. Well, he faced more challenges as a new job seeker.
There was hardly an employment opportunity for Soros. It took him some significant time to land a job opportunity. Being visionary, he invested in business. That marked the onset of his career in finance. Soros is now a billionaire and he has a hedge fund worth millions. His skills in business cannot be matched with the skills of an ordinary entrepreneur or investor. He has developed a platform for business through the hedge fund. Soros is also into political reforms. He has been mentioned in several political platforms including endorsing Hillary Clinton in the 2016 general elections. He was the major donor for Hillary.
Open Society Foundations
In a different scenario, Soros has been helpful to most people in the society. He is an admired contributor of Open Society Foundations, a network of over 100 organizations that capitalize on charity. The Open Society Foundations does not discriminate. From migrants to LGBT, proper governance and education reforms, Open Society is here to assist the suffering. Soros has majorly contributed to the growth of this organization. He has also fought for the rights of children who cannot access education. His works extend to South Africa as he has been instrumental in offering finances to educate the less fortunate.
To some, Soros is always caught up in conspiracies. Most of his works highlight the plea of humanity. He funds masses that have committed to riot against police brutality too. Soros continues to establish large platforms through charity and entrepreneurial networks.For a billionaire, he is too friendly for humanity, a good gesture that most can emulate.
