The great majority of people on this globe believe that life on this earth starts with birth into a loving family. We are looked after from the beginning, and we are provided with all we need to flourish.
Unfortunately, such was not the case for Freddie Figgers, 32. In fact, there is nothing about his life that can be described as ‘normal.’
Figgers was discovered as a newborn on the street, having been abandoned by his biological mother because she did not want him.
‘My mum threw me out like regular trash,’ he said. ‘I’m not even meant to be here,’ he said.
Nathan and Betty Figgers, on the other hand, were looking for a son and decided to give Freddie an opporunity to live in a family. They welcomed baby Freddie into their house as adoptive parents, providing him with the second chance he so desperately needed.
According to an article on his website, Figgers explained: ‘It’s wonderful that you can meet people like my parents, and I have never met my biological parents to this day. I’ve never had a strong interest in it.’
As Figgers got older, it became clear that he has a natural talent for understanding the physics that underlie electrical equipment. Before his tenth birthday, he began disassembling and reassembling a 1989 computer that his father had given him as a birthday present.
Later, at the age of 12, he was offered his first job as a computer technician. Only three years later, he began developing a cloud database in his own garden, thus establishing himself as a small business owner.
Fast forward to adulthood, and Figgers, despite the fact that he had never attended college, founded his own telecommunications company, Figgers Communications, which he still operates today.
As stated in the description of one of his YouTube videos, ‘He is currently the founding and chief executive officer (CEO) of Figgers Wireless, an African-American-owned telecommunications company valued at over $62.3 million dollars that you may have never heard of.’
Not only that, but Figgers has also had the opportunity to develop his own inner creativity as well. When he was a child, he started to develop gadgets to assist his adoptive father, who was suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.
He could communicate with his father at any time by concealing a two-way communication device and GPS tracker in a pair of shoes he was wearing at the time.
Figgers has undoubtedly had an extraordinary life so far, and we will likely hear more about him and his accomplishments in the future.
Freddie, you’ve done an excellent job! Best of luck in your future endeavors, and we wish you the best of luck.
