Why am I Interested?

I have always been interested in technology and coding, this job is a perfect job for that interest. Bill Gates started out as a computer programmer and lead to the creation of Microsof processors, technology, AND their Windows programs! Bill Gates makes 1,000 every 3 seconds, leading to him having a salary of 3.71 billion dollars! He makes 114.71 dollars per second, picking up $100 is pointless for him. I want to start my own company that will be the future Windows!

Partial Loan

Why did I

I have already started a college savings account so hopefully by the time I get to college I should be able to pay all or most of the tuition and other payments. If not I will DEFINITELY apply for scholarships to get at least some of it paid off, then move into work study plans. Of course I will be working in high school to earn some extra money, I want to get as much money as I can so I don't have a bunch of stress on paying bills!
