Kevin Systrom’s story starts from his childhood when he loved to play Doom-2 and created his own levels as a child. In his middle school he entered the world of programming and never took his foot off it. And his sudden love for photography, inspired from his mother, took him to the lists of millionaires. And that happened with his breakthrough idea called Instagram.The kid Kevin had no plan for pursuing his career in start-ups and technology as he loved becoming a disco jockey when in high school. And his first job was at a recording store.
Being more of a practical guy, he changed his subjects to management science and engineering programming when he went to Stanford.It was during his junior years, when photography grabbed his attention. One of his professor showed him Holga- the cheap camera that took retro style photographs.
