I have a BS in Human Biology and a minor in Economics from University of California, San Francisco. My goal was to get into med school and be a hot shot doctor. During my sophomore year in college, I was introduced to the stock market by my mom. By the time I graduated, I realized that I no longer wanted to be in the medical field. I have been reading a lot about stocks and I am a news junky because of this. My goal is to work in the financial field involving stocks/options. I joined seeking alpha because some of the authors here are average joes with really interesting and enlightening ideas. I hope to gain a lot from this site as I search into what exactly I want to pursue as a career. If you know any great careers that involves trading stocks, please let me know! Right now, my mindset is to one day work in a hedge fund.
