Middle-Schooler looking to learn more about the industry

Hi, my name is Joe. Im an 8th grader who is interested in becoming an investment banker. I am interested in becoming one cause I really like trading stocks and I made 231% returns in February with Gamestop which I think is really good. I use Robin Hood on my iPhone to trade. I am really passionate about becoming an investment banker so I can out-invest evil companies like Citidel. I am just curious what I can do to become one. I have already started making my resume. I have put on there that I had an internship at my uncle's private eqity company last summer. I did not really do much but I came to his office for a couple of days and I hear private eqity is really good to getting into investment banks. I am really excited because options are really fun and I would love to trade stocks for my job and make a lot of money! My dad told me that I need to go to a really good college to work in an investment bank so I think my parents are trying to send me to a boarding high school which is supposed to be really good at teaching me. I think it is called Flips Andever. Is this good school for investment banking? Thank you!

Tell your parents to look into Flips Exiter as well. It's better.

It's Phillips Exeter you clown. 🤡
