12 Paid Internships Abroad in Summer 2020 Go Overseas

I'm 14 and I've been trading stocks, options, futures, and forex for almost 4 years. How do I land a finance internship and where do I look? Should I wait a little bit longer?

Ever since I was in 7th grade, I started to learn about trading because of video game trading. I remember trading many in-game items and selling them to 6th graders for cash. Every night, I would stay up in the video-game item auction websites ( scrap.tf ) because there would be fewer bidders and, therefore more opportunities to snag some good deals. I didn't even play video games at that point, and I only liked trading video-game items. One evening my mother said, "If you like trading so much, you should learn about the stock market.". From then on, I was hooked. So every day after school, I would spend hours watching videos to not understand it, researching it, writing notes, and continuing to expand my knowledge. After about 1.5 years, I was quite knowledgeable and parents that I had given presentations to were very impressed (This was a middle school project where you would present on something you're interested in). Some parents couldn't understand a word I was saying. Near the end of 8th grade, my father wanted to give money to trade with (>$1000) and during the summer I had almost doubled his money. During freshman high school, I would go to the library and open my laptop and just trade. I made about $60-$200 a day and some days I lose money. Although since I managed my risk, my reward outweighed my risk. Trading is just as much, if not more as a mental game than a numbers game. During my freshman year, my father wanted me to manage his retirement fund, and by then, I knew how to read financial statements and do fundamental analysis very well. We are currently 30% up with me joining in January 2020. Although it was sad to find out my father had lost quite a bit of money in his account statement, but now his account is finally positive. Because of this, my mother now encourages me to "monitor" my father which is hilarious considering my age. When I grow up, I want to be a financial analyst or start a prop shop (a type of trading firm), go into real estate (another story for later), and achieve financial freedom. For now, I want to apply for internships to gain some work experience in finance and I have some unanswered questions.
- P.S Sorry for any grammar issues I may have missed. English class was never my strong suit.
Questions:
  1. What route should I take? Trade school? Finance or accounting in college?
  2. How do I get some finance-related internship as a high schooler?
    1. Is this even possible?
    2. Should I wait a little bit longer?
    3. Where do I look?
  3. What route should I take? Trade school? Finance or accounting or both in college?

I missed the IB Internship application window. Need advice on what to do next (UK)

I'm a 2nd year BSc Econs studying at a non-target mid uni in the UK. I've been hesitant to apply for internships due to my indifferent 1st year results but now that I've aced my mid-terms I'm looking around for remaining internship openings. However, GradNav's info on various banks and firms state that most if not all of the firms are closed for applications. I'm really regretting not applying earlier.
In the meantime, what can I do now in order to secure an investment/forex internship in the summer? If not, what can I do in order to boost my CV so I could have a strong footing when fall application window reopens again? I'm looking to start learning forex and beginning CFA, and starting an investment club in my uni. Any inputs are greatly appreciated. Cheers!

Obtaining an internship related to Forex. Is this possible? Sorry if this question deviates from the normal discussion here, but I didn't know where else to pose this question.

I hate to derail the normal discussion of this subreddit, because it is normally filled with great discussions and ideas, but I didn't know where else to take this question. I'm a double major in finance and economics and I have recently taken a interest into Forex and really enjoy the industry. Is it possible to get an internship in a bank's forex department is that a thing? Im really just fishing for answers I'd appreciate any advice or response.

Chance a depressed gap year boy

Note: The mention of O levels and A levels throughout the post refers to the British patterned system of education. O levels is equivalent to the 9th and 10th grade and Alevels is equivalent to the 11th and 12th grade in the American High School System
Hi, I am a Pakistani guy currently on a gap year after doing A levels from one of the most prestigious schools in the country on a 100% scholarship. I did my O levels from a very less renowned school because of my financial condition but my grades allowed me admission into my A levels school. That is why most of my ECAS were done in the last 2 years. I am looking to apply to the following international universities with full scholarship/financial aid:

FOREX FOREX FOREX

Hi. I'm 17 years old, turning 18 in two weeks and since I was 9, I've had a profound interest in world markets, companies, politics, economics and real-estate. It started when my dad would watch Jim Cramer on CNBC during the 2008 Recession, and that's where it grew. Since I was 11 and a half, I've been actively involved in the economies of two online games (Team Fortress 2 and ROBLOX) and have made over $15,000 since then. Not much considering it's been over 4 years since, however I think it's quite a bit, considering I started with virtually zero, literally. I would buy and sell virtual items, speculate, calculate when I think would be the most 'appropriate' time to sell it, etc. I learned quite a bit, and it made me realize how much tougher it is to self-earn, as opposed to earning with an actual salaried job. However, now that I've had experience self-earning and earning through several real life jobs and paid internships, I've begun to realize how much I dislike working for other people, and being someone else's corporate slave. I thoroughly enjoy working for myself, making my own money, and being introverted. I absorb information extremely quickly, and I am quick to make a judgement or analysis on virtually anything. I read 24/7 and I already know quite a bit on how things work. Without bragging, at 14 I predicted that Facebook would be a huge hit 2-3 years after its IPO release (this was when it first went public), and everyone around me in real life went along with what the media thought (they thought it wouldn't do well, as Facebook wasn't performing too well during its initial release, but that changed). I made the same prediction with Tesla, and most recently with crude oil this year. I learned a multitude from my gaming experience, most importantly with risk management. Never gamble more than you can afford, Always make sure that you have something to fall back on, or a very good amount leftover, always be prepared to take a risk, and even if you lose, you still have something. But yeah. How can I do this? Currently I am in college and I initially wanted to be a lawyer, but I realized how much I'd dread it. I am personally OK with working a mundane job for the next 3-5 years, as I don't spend a dime of what I earn/have, and I am very grateful that my dad is allowing me to live rent free, food expensive-free, etc. Suggestions please! PS: I would also FOREX trade as well, but that's a different story.

My internship interview experience!

This was one of the most questionable firms that I’ve applied to (I came to this conclusion after the interview). So the website through which I applied to showed an opening in “ Hedge fund mgmt” ( in my country there are barely an hedge funds). I was called for an interview the next week and this is what the interview is like...... basic stuff about myself, academic background etc.. and then came this point where they asked me to bring in $1000 from my friends and family for forex trading. At this point I’m wondering which fucking firm allows rookies to trade with client money with very little trading experience. The I shared my trading experience and spoke a bunch of option trades that I’ve done and pointed out where I went wrong and stuff and the interviewer seemed to be unaware of what options were and tried hard to change the topic. Their target candidates were college freshers with/without a finance background. So putting all these things together I came to the conclusion that these guys were fraudulent and deceiving as a lot of red flags had been raised. Has anyone faced something like this ? This was one awful experience.

Need advice/direction/understanding please!

Hello! I am new to the general spectrum of e-commerce and passive income. This will be a relatively long post, so you can understand my situation. I am 18 years old and live in a dorm at Georgia State University in downtown Atlanta. I'm interested in passive income, because a life goal of mine is to be financially sustainable without that dreadful and desperate struggle to stay afloat. I've worked in a restaurant/bar and Chick-Fil-A. I like to take opportunities to grow and I'm an extremely hard worker who's tackled many personal challenges, but these experiences always ended up d r e a d f u l for my mental health. I wish I could adapt to the physical job norm, but my personality strengths don't align with that particular field. I am currently studying business at Georgia State and have a good head start. I also have a good amount of savings in my bank account, setting me up for my journey. I am hoping to have some form of reliable income by the end of the school year in May. I have a passion to devoting myself to this work ONLY if it pays. This situation could be even more perfect for me considering my girlfriends dad owns his own small marketing company and has some decently large clients. My girlfriend's parents are also great friends with a man who literally went from dirt poor to being able to support a large family and more through marketing and he owns his own company and offers marketing internships from his company to GSU students.
To reiterate, I have nothing but time, savings, and extreme hard work to make passive income pay off and there is nothing I want more than that financial freedom from terrible jobs for people my age. I will devote my time, but only if it is worth it.
Here is where I need help. I don't want to end up spending all my money instead of using it for larger gain. I'm all for using money to grow, but I don't know where to go from there. Where should my research and time be allocated in this case? I've researched hours and hours of different sources such as Forex day trading (even my friend is making decent profits with Forex from some like $200 dollar course?!?!), and drop shipping, but seem to hit a brick wall with how much I know on the subject. Do I sacrifice more hours learning youtube and various different forms or income, or do I sacrifice more hours in one particular course or subject? I am VERY on the fence when it comes to these kinds of decisions, only because I want to make the right one. I'm fine with slowly losing a little money to gain experience, but a payment like that sure seems like a leap of faith(right?). I don't necessarily understand how to explain this business model either. I feel scared to talk about it because I understand how the profits occur, but it is the difficult talents you must possess that I do not have. I want to be able to talk about my business pursuit with my parents and have full knowledge and confidence in that what I'm doing is right. The businesses you can start through passive income are possible to be profitable, but how often does that happen and is it REALISTIC that my time I invest into this is worth it? I would hate to throw away a fantastic economic opportunity. I just need to know what direction I should be going towards considering my connections and situation. I lack the confidence to jump in, as I understand I must gain more knowledge. Another issue I face is I need to know where my knowledge and studying should be allocated. I need to know what works and how I can get there. I believe I am capable of anything as I am an extremely high achiever and have always worked hard on the things I'm passionate about. Thinking about my loved ones I'm doing this for only motivates me more and I want to prove to others that I can persevere.

If you read this entire thread.. thank you so much for your time. I promise you you've found the correct and capable person, but where do I go from here? I don't mean to sound cocky in any way shape or form, as I am just very ready to take initiative of my extra time so I don't wait around until I get a potentially crap job with low pay. I appreciate this community and I'm looking forward to hopefully getting to build connections and grow.

Lastly- I would love links, video advice, emails, and anything else to help out my education on this!
Again, thank you so much and have a wonderful day.

My Story

Hello everyone Im a longtime lurker and decide to post my story on my second account. Im 21 (m) and just like most of the people on this sub I’m a also virgin but I don’t see myself as a loser because of that. I have been offered by people to lose my card but I choose to reject their offer because of age or because I ain’t feeling it from the person offering it. Idk I’m the type of person that wants to have an emotional connection with someone rather than a sexual one.
Alright, So I come from an Hispanic Immigrant Family and I am part of the first generation to be born in the United States and first to go to college from my family (including cousins). And before I was born my destiny was set in stone as I would have the responsibility to carry my family out of poverty and into the lime light. With this my happiness was pushed aside and I was pushed to become a great student so our future would look bright but unfortunately along the way my knees buckled along the way as I was moving towards that goal.
So I guess I should explain my situation which all starts with my family situation. My parents are people who were too immature and not ready to have kids and unfortunately I was the first and that meant I was the test subject for them. Now I don’t hate myself or anything in general really but I hate my Dad in fact I hate my own name because it reminds me of him (I’m jr he’s sr) and I hate that because he was the cause for so much physical abuse and I’m not talking about the stereotypical sandal moment, I’m talking about getting a toy firetruck smashed on your head. Meanwhile on the other side I was subject to emotional abuse from my mom which was due to the shitty relationship they had and I was the stress outlet for both of them.
People do grow though and change along the way but I’m just too detached to them that I don’t want reconcile or continue to move forward with them. As said before I was the test subjest because by the second they improved and by the third they cracked the puzzle and finally succeeded at parenting. The thing is I am kinda jealous of my brother and sister on how they were treated and how they were able to relax and nothing was really expected of them. Which in turn has made detached from them because I have nothing in common with them but being born from the same person. Nor do I expected them to help with what was thrusted upon me one thinks shes hard and the other is lazy and cant read at all despite being in 8th grade. But besides that fact in all honesty I don’t see them as family but more as people I just live with. With my family situation in the gutter it basically set the foundation for the state of my mental health.
My mental health started becoming apparent in high school around sophomore year when I started to suffer from a lack of motivation when it came to moving forward with my life. It eventually escalated as time went on and it got was worse especially after high school. Because after high school I started getting some of my old memories pop up randomly and they were all about how I was treated as kid. None of them were pleasant memories such as the firetruck incident and all the physical and emotional abuse from my past. Which in turn brought me to an existential crisis as I questioned what I was working towards and this is where my knees started buckling and succumbed to the weight of the stress and responsibility thrusted upon me without my consent and I was left wondering why am I fighting for people I never really cared about or had my best interest. So while I was dealing with all this I was trying to deal with my depression which was by focusing on something no matter how small it was.
Which brings me to the light at the end of the tunnel which was Wrestling and I fell in love the moment I saw it for the first time because of the story telling aspect of it. I never understood someone’s passion for being an accountant, a manager or etc until I compared to my love for wrestling. Not only that but I don’t see it as just a sport but as a way out because it was the only thing that was able to keep me going. No matter how far I go back wrestling was always a part of my fun childhood moments unfortunately. Wether it be playing with my friends, or watching it on tv.
As time went on I even eventually got tired of watching it and wanted to be apart of it and wanted to make a career but their is no money to be made when starting out. So I gave up and decided to go to school and I am currently one year and a half from graduating but I just couldn’t take it anymore, because I wasn’t able to get internships and it wasn’t something I could see myself doing for the rest of my life. So on News Years some shit went down and I decided that 2020 would be the year that I would be happy by taking the steps necessary to focus on wrestling but unfortunately Covid hit so I couldn’t pursue that and eventually I stopped working out and just let everything go and pass me by as I shut myself in my room and only go out to work. Which leads to where I am now.
But before that I kept on mentioning an event that happened on News Years and that was where we went to visit my cousins in arizona and from their we went to Flagstaff where it snows and I was at awe because I just love the snow since I’m from California I don’t get too see much of it. Along the way back my mom was complaining the whole time as she wanted to go back home instead of Flagstaff and kept at it for the whole trip including insults and stuff about our cousins. It got bad to a point where I just wanted to jump out the car but since I was driving I didn’t want to take anyone’s else’s life with me nor did I want to cause a car crash as I was on the freeway. We went to eat later that day and she just kept at it and while I was their I went to the bathroom and broke down as I was praying for someone to save me and looking for a way to end my life. Instead of that I gave myself an ultimatum and that was if I don’t change my position in life by the end of 2020 I would unfortunately bite the bullet because I just need a Way Out of this place/situation I’m in.
I’m doing this ultimatum because I’m hoping it will motivate me to continue moving forward. Its currently august and I have payed of my debts, dropped out of school (hated my major), quit my job and got another one (thinking about quitting my new job), and I picked up forex in hopes of making money that way. With 4 months left on my ultimatum it seems like I haven’t done much but it’s whatever.
The thing is people have the impression that if you talk about your problems you will magically be saved but I could talk to someone about my problems for days but the thing is I don’t need to talk about my problems what I need is a way out of my current position in life and I have thought about spending a month in Japan just exploring and spending my last month alive their but Covid unfortunately came along and ruined what hope I did have if I were able to describe my situation in a song it would be the song Maze by Juice WRLD and the song Come back to Earth by Mac Miller.
The things is if I die I’m gonna miss trivial things like not being able to see the ending of Attack on Titan, Solo Leveling, My Hero Academia, Wings, McDonalds, In-n-out, Pizza, Food/Anime/Wrestling in general, the new music I’m gonna miss or even seeing what path my little cousin is going to take as he grows up. And Depending on what I choose to do moving forward I will try to update you guys with my progress and if I don’t then I guess I bite the bullet. Anyways thanks for reading my story feels more like a Memoir but I just wanted to get this of my chest.
SideNote: Also sorry for it being so long but this is just the surface theirs actually a lot more I could go into detail but I went on long on enough.

As a robotics university student, how do I make myself more appealing to FinTech and Quantitative trading companies

I am currently applying for internships with companies like G-research or causaLens in quantitative or market analyst positions, I have a total of 30 applications sent out and currently been rejected by 4 so far.
What can I do to make myself more employable and beneficial to these companies?
I have included all of my background in programming languages, interests in forex/stocks/cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, my part-time role as an internet analyst, project management abilities with my current university projects, my self taught experience in trading, etc.
I fine-tune my CV to fit the job description/company/what they are looking for
Keep my LinkedIn page updated and full of information about myself and experiences.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

In terms of the best “Return on Investment”, Is it better to work on getting a really high paying job in Finance or get an average job and using the free time to invest in other income generating operations such as personal investing, real-estate and rental property etc.

I’m currently a University student majoring in Finance in my last year of school.
I’ve been doing a lot of research lately in terms of what options will provide me with the highest income in the future and would like some suggestion or advice in terms of what will provide me with the greatest ROI relative to the associated risks and benefits.
I initially wanted to get into IB or AM but not from a target school so ya’ll already know where this is going..
Option 1.
At this point, my first option would be to work in Corporate Finance, primarily in a FP &amp;amp;amp;amp; A, Credit Analyst or some type of valuation and advisory role.
Because I have little to no work experience, I plan on increasing my excel and modelling skills through the “FMVA” or Wall Street Prep”.
And hopefully gaining additional experience through either an internship or volunteering for free in some finance type position.
Now if I plan on moving up the ranks and maybe get a shot in IB or Corp Dev.. I will have to also take either the CFA or MBA down the road.
Option 1: Estimated income of $100k - $200k+ within a 3-6yr time frame.
If I’m a senior FP &amp;amp;amp;amp; A, Finance manager or land a position in IB or AM by then. —————————————————————
Option 2.
Get a normal finance job paying maybe around $50k a year or work as an FP&amp;amp;amp;amp;A, same route as above but Disregard the CFA and MBA.
And instead of pursuing these additional time consuming and costly designations in order to advance through the Corp ladder,
I can Allocate a certain % of annual income into side operations such as personal investing in terms of equities, small cap, forex trading.
After 2-3years, hopefully after saving, I’ll have enough capital to invest in real-estate/rental property as well.
Option 2 will hopefully provide me with 3 streams of income, 2 of which are residual streams of income.
5-6years time frame. $200k+ potentially more if I get lucky with my personal investments.
Expand once these operations are more established.
Anyways, which of these 2 options will provide me with the best ROI relative to the risks and benefits associated to each?
Any other thoughts on each of these 2 options?
It really comes down to using my free time off work to either gain additional credentials to advance my career or invest in other income generating operations.
Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks! ;)

Breaking into Corporate Treasury

Hi! I’m an Economics major at a semi-target, with hopes to end up in a corporate treasury position assessing forex risk and using hedging strategies to mitigate it. For medical reasons from my first two years my GPA is quite bad so getting into IB is completely off the table. Other than starting there (the standard advice) where would you aim to get internships and first/second jobs to prep for a career in that area? Is there typically a clear route within Treasury departments that I just need to get to the bottom rung for? Any information is greatly appreciated! :)

How to derive historical financial data for forex instrument backtesting

Hello,
If you believe backtesting strategies for forex major currency pairs is unhopeful please leave a comment with an explanation.
I'm a CS major at Columbia with internships in back office global bank infrastructure positions here in NY and have great interest in trading algorithmically because I can't trust my behavior to enter trades, among other obvious reasons.
I would like to know what the best sources are for obtaining historical data (OHLCV, etc) for (forex) backtesting purposes. Is a large excel file used in practice, or are historical prices derived via API's? It seems that I need to pay after some research online, but I know you redditors can deliver.

edit
I found a free source here for EURUSD. There are other pairs available too.

Help for a Trading Competition?

Hi guys, I am relatively new here, only joined in the last year or so and I have found you to be really usefull and I love learning as much as I possibly can. I was mainly interested in stock investing but Forex has appealed to me more and more over the last few months. For the first time I'm going to ask you guys for a little bit of advice, anything at all is really appreciated. (I have been doing the BabyPips courses as well as reading here religiously to learn as much as I can.) I have learned a decent amount of technical analysis from learning about stocks, so I might pair this with fundamental analysis as my basis. I have access to some mainstream financial information platforms (Bloomberg terminal, Reuters).

I am doing a M.Sc. in Finance and as we have just been offered to compete in a student Forex trading competition with the prizes being some internships in one of the biggest banks in the country. I know I realistically wont win but I want to give it my best shot and I'm really willing to work for it. So here are some of the details:
- We have $25,000,000 to trade over the coming 5 weeks. (No leverage).
- You can trade as much as you want, no limits on what pairs to trade etc.

Would you more experienced traders have any advice for me on maybe strategies or pairs I should mainly stick to?
How much profit should I expect on a trade as a really rough guide? What sort of Risk:Reward is common in Forex?
How much should I trade in one go, does one lot (100,000) seem appropriate?
Are there any interesting indiators I could check out?

Sorry for the long post, I just really have a honest passion for trading and investing and I love learning about it and hearing what more experienced people have to say, thanks for an amazing subreddit!!

Why am I still struggling?

Hey guys, writing this on mobile.
Wanted to start off by saying, I appreciate this sub so friggin much.
Now to begin my rant/seeking guidance/a sign/reality check
I'm a 26 year old mom with a 5 year old living in the Tristate Area, I've struggled financially my entire life. My parents weren't rich and I definitely did not get off on the right footing financially once I became an adult. To compensate for this, I've thrown myself into schooling, volunteering, internships, and becoming certified in so many different areas thinking this will eventually create a strong safety net for myself. Well, I havent really seen the fruits of my labor.
Forgive me as I attempt to give clarification, feel free to comment asking for better clarification if I've missed a step. After almost 7 years of college, I finally (hopefully) graduate with a Bachelor's in Sociolgy (I know, I know, long story as to why I majored in it) this May which is next month, I am TEFL certified, Parapro certified, Ordained Wedding Officiant, in the midst of completing my online RBT Certification training, Notary Signing Agent (have been waiting months to get my first assignment) , Licensed Real Estate Agent as of 4 months ago, and probably other things I cant remember. Oh yeah, and I'm Bilingual (Spanish & English)
I'm highly personable, very friendly, intelligent, attractive, easily approachable person that looks like a librarian , so I know I'm not in this rut for being smart but having a shit personality. I'm well liked in pretty much every area of my life as shown by others.
Job history, is all over the map, I'm sure this has been a contributing factor to my lack of financial stability. The majority of my jobs have been total dead ends. I'll list some of the titles I've held since I was 16: retail cashier, assistant manager at a start-up chiropractor office that closed within 2 years, Amazon delivery driver (was forced to quit), courier service driver, Whole Foods Cashier(forced to quit), ironically Employment Intern for International Rescue Committee during one summer,Volunteer Intake Front Desk for a homeless shelter, Intern for Homeland Security Office of Chief Counsel, Call Center Rep for 2 different Solar Companies, one of which I became a supervisor (I quit after they slashed my pay promising that the pay would remain the same because of my "team's efforts bonuses") TEFL Teacher, and finally a Paraprofessional/Student's Aide through a temp agency.
I currently make nomore than $1,200 a month. I havent made one real estate transaction despite working really hard at it (even my managers are surprised because they saw how dedicated I have been) , my wedding business didn't take off as I thought even though i stupidly signed a contract to a Wedding platform paying $130 a month for advertisement.
So yeah .... idk wtf to do anymore. I dont understand why I keep getting hired for dead end jobs or jobs that dont pay well but exploit. I have been working my ass off and still have gotten nowhere. I'm still broke as shit, I don't know how I'm going to fully cover May's rent, and my car is failing me
My current longterm idea is that I can find a stable paraprofessional job with a school district close to home and work as a RBT part time on weekends. However, I have not gotten any callbacks for Parapro positions.
P.S. I Always tailor my resume to each job I apply for and include a cover letter (I also cheat a little and extend the dates so I don't look like a total job hopper)
Edit: I forgot to mention that I have also spent months working on a dropshipping website that hasn't made a single sale despite dumping money into Instagram advertising, invested $500 to learn about how to be successful in the Forex Market, and traded Cryptocurrencies but failed to recoup all of my money before the inevitable crash

Prop Trading

Directed here from Forex
I’m in the process of applying for internships at prop firms and have received invitations to online and first round interviews. I'm relatively new to the trading world and given the nature of the industry, there’s very little information online.
My question is: what makes a top tier firm better than a mid tier firm?
Hypothetically, let’s use Belvedere (mid) and Jump (top) as our two examples. Other than an increase in the base salary with Jump, isn’t the compensation structure still the same? Won’t you be receiving the same bonus amount if your performance is the same at both locations? Do traders at "better" firms trade with more capital? I’m aware that the level of mentors/coaches is higher at Jump but there are very skilled traders at Belvedere as well. What other factors make Jump such a prestigious prop shop?
Hope my question(s) makes sense. I can clarify further if needed. Any and all help would be appreciated.
Edit: Also, because everyone likes a little insight into the poster’s history, I go to a top target school in the Midwest pursuing a business major. GPA is ehhh but my school has a strong enough alumni connection to get me past the resume screening process. Jump is unattainable but its prestigious status interests me immensely.

I'll keep on moving, as that what makes life to lively.

I’m a secretive person and don’t tell many stories, keeping them to myself, keeping my feelings to myself, but I decided that I need to be open about myself, my problems and accept love more fully, from family, friends and everyone.
I feel that opening about my past is the first step.
My childhood was chaotic, full of troubles and troubled people around me, because of the wars that still voided our peoples lives, that on it’s own is too much to cover, so I’ll stick to the main things.
I was growing in school, getting out of my depressed shell, of sitting on the PC countless hours, watching porn, being productive, being more courageous, getting to know people little by little, I got more control of my life. But then my father died when I was in high-school. The biggest problem was, that I was just getting to know him better and his kind ways, he was a mighty father.
So I slowly, with big resistance of trying to stay positive, went back to my depressive state. It wasn’t strong, it was subtle, just creeping over me, little by little, making my drinking reckless and taking bigger risks, resulting in injury. I was troubled, silent as always, but I found new friends after high-school which I could go out to the forests, camp there and talk about myself more. I felt understood.
Fast forward I’m in college, I meet new people, new people who I can relate too, who also have a hard time and seen plenty of death, I was raising once again.
Then on new years eve my grandmother died, who was a friend to my from childhood, who took care of me for the longest time. It was a hard death, with many problems in her last year, causing our family many troubles.
Again the silent depression seeped, but I was stronger this time.
I had troubles with my friends and had to move forward, I met more people from a youth center who related to my pains, I met people from my dancing classes who were like a new family to me. I was blessed by such experience.
I was doing well in college studying civil engineering, on my second year I got an internship in a job I dreamed to be in, but I had greater goal, which was charity and there was an organization I was watching that I wanted to join which was in Germany. My heart said go, so I quit my job and went to Germany, with great people who were amazing, productive and wise, but I had to leave after a month as I did not fit the role.
I’m back at square one from all my efforts to be in that charity organization, but I moved on, continued my studies, went to libraries on my free time and learned finance, how to manage my money, got into crypto, forex with small results, but I persisted in finding ways. I wanted to do something with my free time and not just sit around.
Back at home with all the connections I had, I got inspiration and didn’t give up.
I met my SO which was amazing, we weren’t very wealthy, but somehow we made the best of it. We got into spirituality, which helped see into our deeper selves and heal our past wounds how ever we could.
Time had come to get a job after my studies, I wanted to try something different and went to the office as a data analyst and it sucked. I got this job after 4 months of searching and I was desperate as money was running low.
After quitting the depressing office job, I had to decide again what to do. My choice was to go to the UK as there I had some great friends who could help me build my foundation up.
This meant leaving my family, SO, friends, home. A hard choice, but a choice I had already made, when I went to Germany.
With not much money, I went to UK, started to work as a cleaner where I had to work 104 hours over 10 days,. It was hard work, too much for my legs that I injured my leg joints in the process which hindered my work and I couldn’t work for 2 weeks, but I had to pursue and move forward, getting knee support and kept on moving. I then got my certifications to work in construction as a labourer which made things more reliable and easier. I knew I could get things to be better, so I kept on searching for opportunities.
Somehow, someway I got to be a civil engineer and got offers to be in a big construction company. Able to rise and not end up in a dead-end job.
And this is my place now, where I stand, finally achieved where I want to be, after being so indecisive, after so much trouble and effort.
Ha.
No, going to UK, I had plans for growing my career, but it was just a big step towards what I wanted to do.
And to move forward, I start by being open about my goals, by sharing them here as I’ve never shared them with anyone, I just stayed silent about them as no one would understand them when I was younger. But I know that on the web there are people that DO understand and I wish to write it here to be seen.
I thank you so much for hearing me.
I shall open myself more to the world and share my gifts as that is my mission. I will not stutter and doubt anymore, no matter who I lose, who dies or what happens, I shall grieve, cry, rest, re-plan, improve and move forward, as that I feel what living is, not standing in one place.

PhD Interested in Finance Career

Hello. I've been reading through the posts on this sub for a few days now and have soaked in a bit of info. I'm from Africa and currently doing a PhD in Germany in geophysics. After playing around a bit with books on Forex, I developed a sudden interest in the financial services industry and I would really like to work in investment banking or management consulting. I know that consulting firms have no problem with PhD applicants but the general impression I get from this sub and other places is that investment banks often want candidates with finance backgrounds, internships, ivy leagues etc. I have come up with a plan and would like your insight on this. Here is the plan: my PhD comes to an end in mid 2022. From now on, I will start to study the financial market, learn financial modeling in excel, create a few models of my own and once I'm comfortable enough with all the valuation, M&A and modeling concepts, I reach out to bankers in Germany and London towards the end of the PhD to discuss with them and show them how far I have come all by myself. My hope is that this would be enough to convince people that I'm really interested in this field and perhaps land me interviews.
Is this a reasonable approach? Could you advise me on how best to go about this? Thanks
