Tesla was born on July 10, 1856 in Austo-Hungarian Empire. When Tesla was born, the lady said that he would be a ¨child of darkness¨ because he was born when there was a violent lightning storm, which was considered a bad omen, but the mother said he would be a ¨child of light.¨
Tesla studied engineering at a University in Austria and got the highest grades. He started to go downhill when he lost his scholarship and became addicted to gambling. He would gamble all of his tuition money. Tesla didn't graduate from the university and didn't receive his grades from last semester because he failed an exam that he didn't study for due to gambling.
