What is one money mistake you made when you were younger?
I spent money on stupid stuff like bubble gum and video games instead of saving it for important stuff later.

How do you manage your money differently today?
I budget. I write out what I’ll need to [budget] every month based on my income, and then I only spend that much money; I just don’t do anything with the rest of it.

What do you study, and what do you want to do with it?
Chemistry. I want an M.B. and a Ph.D. I want to do medical research.
