The new generations have grown up in the digital era, and they are taking advantage of everything that can be done in online spaces. So much so that there are teenagers who are already making enough money to buy a desired product.
DRUGS, SCAMS? NO, THIS YOUNG MAN BOUGHT HIS LAPTOP BY SELLING VIDEO GAME SKINS
The times of making lemonade, mowing lawns, or joining family businesses are over in some countries. Now young people can get what they want by doing business on the internet, although not without suspicion from their parents. A report from Tarreo shared the testimony of Uju Anya, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania in the United States, who revealed that her 16-year-old son bought a $1000 USD laptop
A laptop arrived at my house addressed to my 16yo son. I didn’t buy it. I know neither his dad nor my girlfriend did. I sat the boy down. Took the computer, his phone, said I’ll seize his desktop too and ground him indefinitely until he said where he got $1000.— Uju Anya (@UjuAnya) May 12, 2023
Video game skins.
The woman thought that her son had obtained the $1000 USD by selling drugs or scamming people, but the young man told her and showed her that he had earned money by selling skins in online gaming communities. The surprised mother investigated this economic scene within video games and found it to be a business that generates billions of dollars.
In the end, the mother was at ease because her son had not engaged in any illegal activity, and the young man was able to enjoy his new laptop.
Son and I thank y’all encouraging his entrepreneurial spirit. I even gave him small change to keep learning about business and investments. For those insulting me and my parenting, well, opinions are like assholes—everybody has one 🤷🏾♀️— Uju Anya (@UjuAnya) May 13, 2023
