4. Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google is of Indian origin

Amazing visit to Lagos, Nigeria this week. Feeling invigorated by all the people I met here — be it developers, entrepreneurs, customers or women leaders, everyone is energetic and optimistic about technology and driving change. Special shout out to our “small but mighty” Nigerian Google team for their warm hospitality. Look forward to returning to Africa (and will be sure to work on my dance moves for next time!) #GoogleforNigeria
