Randi Zuckerberg calls Pakistan ‘one of the friendliest countries’

Randi Zuckerberg, the sister of Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, says she was impressed by Pakistan as the country gives immense respect to women.

Randi was speaking during the final day of three-day AdAsia 2019. She described Pakistan as one of the friendliest countries.

During her session, Zuckerberg was all praises for the country and the women it had produced. “Pakistan has given us women such as Malala Yousafzai and Benazir Bhutto,” she said. “This shows that Pakistan is a country that really honours its women,” a report quoted her as saying.

Zuckerberg also revealed she was a fan of cricket and said she was surprised to find out Pakistan was the preferred country when it came to producing soccer balls.

Talking about her childhood, Zuckerberg told the audience, as a child she was passionate about singing. “I would studied art, but my parents wanted me to go to Harvard,” she said, adding after graduation she went from California to New York to work at an advertisement agency.

“After I had settled in New York, I got a call from my brother Mark, imploring me to come back to Silicon Valley to help him with marketing,” she shared.

The 37-year-old added the invitation meant working with family and for free and she was not prepared to do that. “I went to California with the intention of staying there for a week. But when I saw these youngsters locked in a room day and night; eating cupcakes, it was overwhelming. They had the idea of connecting people. They were locked in Hukapan where they worked tirelessly and kept to themselves only,” she said.
