Faye Hadley’s Early Life and Family
Faye Hadley was born on September 25, 1986. She was born to very smart parents. The pressure to succeed was on Faye at a very young age.
In middle school, Faye fell in love with the auto shop class. She had a feeling she wanted to be a mechanic. However, her parents quickly turned down that notion.
Her father earned a Ph.D. from MIT. So, he was very hard on her academic studies. That helped Faye thrive, graduating at the top of her class.
Faye Hadley was accepted to Harvard University. The plan was to graduate with a degree in psychology. Her tenure didn’t last long.
As Faye explained to San Antonio Magazine,
“After my first term at Harvard, I had an early life crisis. I was walking to my apartment after exams and saw this Volkswagen GTI with a license plate from Alaska. The owner told me he was on a trip around the U.S., and I knew I wanted to do that too.”
She enrolled in online courses to fulfill 12 credits for a semester. Faye embarked to Alaska but stopped in Portland, Oregon. Here, her engine blew up.
Faye couldn’t afford to continue on while doing her studies. She decided to stay in Portland, work on her engine herself, and finish her courses. She ended up staying in Portland for ten years.
On top of juggling everything, she took up an unpaid internship at a Volkswagen garage to learn how to fix her car. During that time, she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology.
