Snapchat’s inventor, Garrett Gee, earned $54 million from selling his app.
Instead of living in comfort, he decided to explore the world and trace his Filipino roots.
During their travels, they help those in need rather than just taking photos and souvenirs.
Social Media is a part of everyone’s life. From Facebook to Instagram, from Twitter to Snapchat. The inventors of these Social Media websites and apps earned millions to billions because of its popularity but who would think that one of them is a Filipino?
Meet the Half-Filipino Inventor of Snapchat
Garrett Gee is the millionaire inventor of Snapchat. He sold his app for $54 million.
If you will have $54 million, what will you do with it? For Gee, he decided to visit his homeland. Even if he is half Filipino, he hasn’t visited the Philippines yet. Together with his sister Miristi, they decided to go on a journey of self-discovery and at the same time, to track their roots in the Philippines.
The Long and Sweet Travel Around the World
After selling his app for millions of dollars, Gee and his family packed their bags and went on a long vacation around the world. He realized that even if he has a lot of money, there is still a missing part in him. During an interview, he said: “A part of me just desires to have more connections in my life.”
Gee created a small Youtube show and Instagram accounts. They already took an adventure around the world and are already halfway through and are still going.
Bucket List Family
However, their trip is not just about collecting photos and souvenirs. With each of their destinations, they are looking for different opportunities on how they can help the less fortunate through The Bucket List Family.
