I am a full-time college student that has always had interest in the stock market. My uncle initially got me involved several years ago and I have continued watching the stock market and a little profit here and there. I graduate in May and I hope to really get involved and become more knowledgable about the stock market. I still find it very complex, but I am willing to do my homework and become educated over time. As for me I live in Kansas and am married with no kids, and after I graduate and take boards I hope to buy a dog…or two.
