Most high schoolers are happy to make minimum wage, but New York City resident and high schooler Mohammed Islam is raking in millions before he even graduates from Stuyvesant High.
Mohammed, who's the president of the school's Investment Club, has made $72 million trading stocks and become somewhat of an overnight celebrity at schoool after being profiled by Business Insider on their 20 Under 20 in Finance list.
