‘She evaded the law’ – Alexis Ohanian, husband of Serena Williams, opens up about an emotional moment with the late mother after Reddit hit a major $10 billion milestone

College roommates Alexis Ohanian, Aaron Swartz, and Steve Huffman founded Reddit. Reddit was sold to Condé Nast for $10 million. Compared to Reddit’s most recent $10 billion valuation, Alexis Ohanian received something of a “pennies-on-the-dollar” deal when he sold the company in 2006.

However, Ohanian later revealed that his mother’s illness was what influenced him the most in the decision to sell Reddit. He also spoke about the emotional moments with his late mother, who evaded the law to do what was best for her family.

American internet entrepreneur and investor Alexis Ohanian spoke about his late mother, Anke Ohanian, who was a pharmaceutical technician.

He revealed that this mother broke the law to do what was best for her family. She came to the United States as a young undocumented immigrant from Germany. He also mentioned the sacrifices she made for her family.

Ohanian said“She circumvented the law to do what was right for her family and sacrificed whatever life she might have had at home for something greater for us.”

Alexis revealed that his decision to sell Reddit was the best he could do in exchange for her mother’s unwavering support and sacrifice for him over the years.

He said, “The best phone call I’ve ever made in my life was telling my mom Reddit sold — in a real, tangible way, it seemed like the perfect capstone to her 23 years of tireless support and sacrifice for me.” .
