I started a Roth in HS. Went gangbusters for a couple of years then I lost my ass in the tech crash. I was in the Janus Science and Tech fund or something like that and lost ~70%.

@P1 I did the same thing you did - good shout on no fee no load ETFs. Also looking into crypto now

I am a 23 yo civil engineering new grad (May 2021) doing QC at a construction company making $76,980 + moving bonus and good benefits. I’m also an immigrant (this is important because my family depends on me for money) and living in a HCOL state (OR) after the company moved me from Texas. I have about 18k in personal debt and made the mistake of renting a 1bed1bath with a pretty high rent ( lesson learned I’m getting a roommate next time)
