Shaun White Angel · Los Angeles, California, United States
Born in San Diego, California in 1986, Shaun Roger White endured two major surgeries to correct a heart defect before he was 1 years old. Despite this challenging start Shaun proved he was far from frail, charging into sports like surfing, soccer and snowboarding at a young age. Shaun grew up in a family of five and one of the family'sfavorite pastimes included skiing. At the age of 4, Shaun proved to be fearless on his skis racing down the slopes with older brother Jesse. In an attempt to slow down Shaun when he was 6, his mom decided to put him on a snowboard and instructed him to copy everything Jesse did. Unfortunately for her, it only encouraged Shaun to go faster.While Shaun was being lauded as a snowboard prodigy, in the summertime he was simultaneously turning heads on the skateboard scene. Professional skateboarder Tony Hawk befriended the 9-year-old at a skate park and mentored the up-and-comer, encouraging Shaun and helping him turn pro at the age of 17. Participating in both sports was far from usual, but for Shaun this duality helped excel his progression.

Alexis Ohanian Angel · San Francisco, California, United States
Alexis Ohanian, born April 24, 1983, is an entrepreneur and investor in Brooklyn, NY, best known as the co-founder and executive chair of reddit, a platform for online communities to share links and have discussions. While he learned his earliest lessons in leadership and web design from his high school Quake 2 clan and Everquest guild, Alexiscontinued his official studies at the University of Virginia, where he met his future co-founder Steve Huffman during freshman year move-in day. This would lead to the founding of reddit, which he recounted along with many lessons for entrepreneurs, in his national bestseller, Without Their Permission.At UVA, Alexis majored in business and history with a minor in German. Though he had originally planned to become an immigration lawyer, he experienced an epiphany in his junior year (while sitting in a Waffle House) that led him to the realization that he didn't want to practice law. Instead he convinced his best friend Steve to start a company with him.The pair traveled to Cambridge, MA during their senior year spring break to hear Paul Graham give a talk titled "How to Start a Startup." After the lecture, Alexis invited Graham out for a drink so he and Steve could pitch Graham on their business idea. Graham agreed, loved the idea, and suggested they apply to a new seed stage venture firm he'd launched called Y Combinator. Alexis and Steve's original plan was to build an infrastructure that would allow people to order food from their cell phones. Though the idea was rejected, Alexis and Steve were invited to join the first class of Y Combinator, on the condition that they'd come up with a new concept. The next idea they pitched to Graham would become reddit.com.
