Jada Jones already has retirement plans

Jada Jones is hoping to retire at the age of 30 as a multibillionaire.

It is a big dream for a teenager who has not yet started her career, but one the Barbados Exhibition winner believes she can achieve.

She spoke about her goal after she was announced as one of the 19 exhibition awardees for her exemplary performance in Chemistry, Pure Mathematics, Physics, Communication Studies and Caribbean Studies in the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations (CAPE).

She disclosed that while some people studied for extended periods as they prepared for examinations, her approach was to study in short, intense bursts. And it paid off for her.

Jones told Barbados TODAY her plan is to become a software developer, although she admitted it was not her first career choice.

“I never really liked school. I liked the beach a lot, so my initial profession was to study marine biology, but I have problems with my ears when I am diving. I like computers and it was a profitable industry at the time. Technology is becoming more useful. So, I hope I make enough money that I can retire at 30,” the confident Harrison College graduate said.

She will pursue studies in software design at York University in Canada, and hopes to gain employment at the end of her studies.

Recognizing that she might not be able to achieve multibillionaire status by creating software alone, Jones said she plans to invest in several businesses as another strategy for reaching her goal.

    Jada I wish you well in your endeavours and many years of productive good life but as I see it ! going int retirement at age 30 is quite boring even tough one may be a billionaire at that stage of life I think it’s quite aging mentally ! Working on your financial portfolio will keep you occupied . All the best to you in the years to come!
