As our young adults learn about money issues they also think about their future.  They think about investment, something that is useful, helpful to the growing community, valuable and also a wise growing financial industry.

 A group of 18 students were broken into two groups of 9each.  Each group was given 1.5 million dollars of which they had to use in an investment project.

 The group of girls decided to invest their money into an educational institution.  They will construct a three floor building to accommodate those who wish to design their own fashions.  The building will be structured as follows:
