I'm a 23 yo French student finishing my master degree (in chemical engineering).
I come from a family with strong military background. My mom retire from the french navy at 35 yo and my father was already sick when I was born. Since I never saw my parents worked, the rat race never really make sense for me.
In college, I played some poker to pay the bill was friend with a bunch of poker players and when they drop-out to become player pro, I chicken out (This path was too uncertain for me) and stay in college :P (2 are "living the dream" in Thailand and 3 came back completely broke)
I'm currently living on my scholarship (~440€*10/year)and government help(~120€) and thinking about starting a phd ( because the french system sucks). Oh, and I have a loan of 10k€ :( Doesn't sound like much but education is nearly free here.
After my PhD, I would like to work in Switzerland or in Canada, living as frugally as I can for 7-8 years and came back in France for my retirement.
I like to run and I am a gamer since I got my NES when I was 3. :)
Still taking my firsts steps in ER with good hope :)
