Miami Journal: Michael Sayman's rise in the tech industry

Michael Sayman, who comes from Peruvian and Bolivian parents, arrived in Miami in 1996. His struggle with isolation at school inspired him to spend time with technology. He created 4Snaps, a popular smartphone game, which caught the attention of Mark Zuckerberg. When Zuckerberg hired him, Sayman became the youngest Facebook employee at age 17. Now at age 25, Sayman is the Senior Product Manager at the video game company Roblox. He strives to inspire young teens to get passionate early on and not let anything get in their way.

Sayman said “Ultimately, it doesn’t matter how smart you are, but how crazy and determined and annoyingly persistent, that decides whether you will be successful.”
