What are you doing now? (If still in high school, list current grade.)
I have just begun my senior year in high school.
What is the most recent financial decision you made?
Spending money on some fire socks and shirts.
What is the most important thing you learned about financial education?
The most important thing I learned was a good understanding of the stock market, and also filling out forms for paychecks.
What advice do you have for current students?
My advice is to truly understand your spending. Take a look at what you have to buy and what you don't have to buy. Is it a necessity or could you save that money instead? Whenever you are about to make a financial decision, consider the size, quantity, and impact this decision will have on you and future choices. Know that it’s fine to treat yourself if you can afford it.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years?
In five years, I see myself graduating with an undergraduate degree from a business-oriented program. In 10 years, I hope to be involved in a successful company located outside of Illinois.
