IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: JERRY YANG - YAHOO! FOUNDER

Rate this Entry

Jerry Yang was born Yng Zhyu?n in Taiwan and immigrated to the US at the age of ten in 1978. Yang was like many immigrant kids who arrive speaking no English and in a remarkably short period of time not only master the language but go on to remarkable achievement. Yang came to America knowing just a single English word and within three years was enrolled in college-leve AP English.

Yang went on to Stanford where he co-created with fellow student David Filo what was to become Yahoo!, a directory of web sites. I remember what he was up to because at the beginning of Yahoo! in 1995, my visalaw.com web site was one of only a few law firms linked in the directory.

Of course Yahoo! has gone on to become one of the mega-web companies and is a force to be reckoned with in the online world. And Yang has gone on to become a billionaire and one of the richest men in the United States.
