Elon Musk is an entrepreneur and investor. He is the co-founder of Neuralink and OpenAI, as well as the founder, CEO, and Chief Engineer of SpaceX. He is also an angel investor, CEO, and Product Architect of Tesla, Inc., and the founder of The Boring Company. Musk is the world’s wealthiest individual, according to both the Bloomberg Billionaires Index and the Forbes real-time billionaires list, with an estimated net worth of roughly US$203 billion as of June 2022.

Elon Reeve Musk was born in a segregated area of apartheid South Africa on June 28, 1971. Maye Musk (née Haldeman), his mother, is a model and nutritionist from Saskatchewan, Canada, who was reared in South Africa. Errol Musk is his father, a White South African electromechanical engineer, pilot, sailor, consultant, and property entrepreneur who used to own half of a Zambian emerald mine near Lake Tanganyika. Musk has a younger brother, Kimbal, and a younger sister, Tosca, both born in 1972. (born 1974). Joshua Haldeman, his maternal grandpa, was an adventurous American-born Canadian who led his family on record-breaking trips to Africa and Australia in a single-engine Bellanca plane. Musk’s ancestors are British and Pennsylvania Dutch.

Musk’s adenoids were removed when he was a toddler because physicians feared he was deaf, but his mother eventually determined that he was simply thinking “in another planet.” Elon’s family was rich when he was younger, and Elon’s father was elected to the Pretoria City Council as a member of the anti-apartheid Progressive Party, with the Musk children presumably sharing their father’s anti-apartheid sentiments.


Errol said his children had wonderful relationships with Black people, including their domestic workers, in an interview with The New York Times. Because to the government’s apartheid regime, Musk decided not to join in South Africa’s mandatory military service. This, Musk says, influenced his choice to leave South Africa soon after graduating from high school.

Musk primarily lived with his father in Pretoria and elsewhere when his parents divorced in 1980, a decision he later regretted two years later. Musk’s relationship with his father has deteriorated. On his father’s side, he has a half-sister and a half-brother. Elon grew up going to an Anglican Sunday school.

Musk became interested in computers and video games when he was ten years old, and he bought a Commodore VIC-20. He learnt computer programming from a book and, at the age of 12, sold the code for Blastar, a BASIC-based video game he made, to PC and Office Technology magazine for $500. Musk, an awkward and introverted child, was bullied throughout his childhood and was once hospitalized after being thrown down a flight of stairs by a group of boys[why?].

Before graduating from Pretoria Boys High School, he attended Waterkloof House Preparatory School and Bryanston High School.
