Priscilla Chan Interview

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


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.

In her interview with Savannah Guthrie, the Harvard graduate explained why she and her husband are donating $120 million 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.
