Priscilla Chan Isn't Mrs. Zuckerberg — She's Dr. Chan

May 30 2014 - 11:00am

Don't call her the first lady of Facebook. Priscilla Chan, who married Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in 2012, is a force of her own. Despite being married to the sixth-richest tech billionaire in the world, Priscilla has remained out of the spotlight but spoke out for the first time this morning on the Today show [1].

In her interview with Savannah Guthrie, the Harvard graduate explained why she and her husband are donating $120 million [2] to Bay Area public schools. Priscilla started working as a science teacher, which fueled her passion for education — and Mark's. The Facebook CEO began sharing his wife's stories as an educator to his friends and colleagues. Priscilla said, "Wait a minute. Those are my experiences!" and compelled Mark to become an after-school teacher himself!

Currently, Priscilla is completing her residency in pediatrics as Dr. Chan (not Mrs. Zuckerberg). Watch her talk about her immigrant upbringing, being pro-hoodie, and her Internet-famous dog, Beast [3].
