After that I was thinking what could be better than making a kick-ass presentation? What could follow the TEDX-Talks structure? The answer is Finance. I had never had any relationship with finance; I didn’t know what a stock market was or even what the word “capital” meant until this project was presented to us. We were challenged to invest $3,000 US dollars in the stock market! You are probably thinking how are 15-16 year old kids going to spend so much money when they didn’t know stocks existed 3 seconds ago? Where are they going to get that money? Well, that’s the great part of having a teacher that believes in his job and believes in what we are doing; he was going to be our sponsor and we needed to prove to him why we should invest in the different stocks. As I mentioned earlier this is the power of experience, even when we are talking about money. I learned about the different types of investment such as stocks, bonds, ETFs, mutual funds, etc and then I had to present where I thought it would be better to invest. Each one in the class (13 students) presented, and let me tell you that the presentations were awesome! But then Mr. Topf, told us “never put all of your eggs in one basket." We decided to separate our cash and invest in what we considered our best investment options. After just one year of investment, we gained more than 500 US dollars, which we invested in BlendZ; and yes, we were only 15-16 year old kids. If these two projects didn’t motivate you enough wait to hear our next real life project.
