    Seek out a mentor, someone that you trust and someone that you admire. Furthermore, someone that speaks the same language as yourself, to help answer ALL of your many questions/concerns.

    Go to your local library and get books that shed insight/provide answers to the questions that you have.

    Good Luck!

    Do your research! Ask your parents lots of questions, it’s a good thing that you are interested in learning about this type of stuff now, getting prepared for adulthood. In high school I didn’t care or wonder about any of those things. I am an adult now, I don’t have any credit history and am trying hard to get myself on my feet. It can be scary at times, but you won’t learn anything if you don’t ask! Call around different places in your town like the banks, ask your social studies teacher or economics teacher if you are going to take economics, as they know a lot and teach a lot about money and finances, even go into your guidance counselor’s office. They can answer your questions and guide you to the right sources for you. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes! You’re human and ahead of anyone who isn’t trying. Good luck.
