Either way they are people who have become famous either by being extremely rich or have done something spectacular, without having sufficient education. My argument meanwhile is about the true definition of education. And informal education surely only can succeed a nation as it leads to a healthier and wealthier nation and that is proven by through research. But the true meaning of education begins when a child is born and is taught how to survive by his/her parents our first parents.

When he was three, the tragic happening of the death of his parents occurred, which changed the course of his life. That was the day where the visit to his grandparents’ house ended up being a permanent visitation of his youth.
