Ben Shapiro Bio And Background

Ben Shapiro was born on January 15, 1984.

According to Zman Magazine, Ben Shapiro showed extraordinary intellectual abilities early in his childhood. Zman Magazine writes that he skipped from second grade to fourth because he was doing English on a fourth-grade level and math on a fifth-grade level.

At the age of six, Shapiro also began writing his first attempts at novels.

For his fifth and sixth grades, Shapiro studied at Maimonides Hebrew Academy, where the pace of studying was again slow for him. As a result, Shapiro’s parents soon enrolled him in a public school program for highly gifted children. There, he completed his seventh and eighth grades.

Shapiro skipped ninth grade, began high school as a sophomore, and enrolled in Yeshiva University of Los Angeles (YULA), a private Orthodox Jewish school. After YULA, Shapiro enrolled in University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) where he studied philosophy.

Zman Magazine writes that Shapiro cannot say when he first became interested in politics because “he cannot recall a time when he was not interested” in it. At the age of 12, when he was in the seventh grade, Shapiro wrote a political essay explaining why President Bill Clinton should be impeached.

According to Zman Magazine, Shapiro initially was politically right-inclined, like his parents. After seeing extreme anti-Semitic and anti-Israel attitudes on campus, Shapiro’s Zionist beliefs were reinforced.

Shapiro told Zman Magazine:

The first day on campus, I caught a glimpse of the student newspaper, the Daily Bruin, and saw an article that compared Arik Sharon to Adolph Eichmann. I thought to myself, ‘This is ridiculous.’ I went over to the offices of the Daily Bruin and demanded that I be allowed to write a counterpoint column against that article. They told me, ‘Ok.’

His article made a strong impression on the editors, which prompted them to ask him to write a weekly column for the student newspaper. Shapiro’s column became the most popular in the newspaper and brought him nationwide attention and praise.

After UCLA, Shapiro enrolled in Harvard Law School from where he graduated in 2007. As an attorney, Shapiro for some time practiced law at the Los Angeles office of Goodwin Procter LLP, served as an independent counsel for large media companies, and ran Benjamin Shapiro Legal Consulting in Los Angeles.

In 2012, Shapiro became editor-at-large at conservative news and commentary website Breitbart News. In 2016, he resigned from Breitbart in response to the alleged assault of Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields by the campaign manager of Donald Trump (video later exonerated the campaign manager). Shapiro and Fields said that the reason for their resignation was the inadequate handling of the situation by Breitbart.

Shapiro criticized the company’s management and stated that Steve Bannon (Breitbart’s chairman at the time) “is a bully, and has sold out Andrew’s [Andrew Breitbart, the founder of Breitbart] mission in order to back another bully, Donald Trump.”
