      It’s funny my brother works in AI startup and he’s called an engineer doing somewhat similar tasks and I work in bank and I’m called an analyst. Maybe I’m an engineer, just don’t know about it 😂

    You’re doing well. Keep up the savings.

    That being said, Your money will get devalued if it doesn’t grow. Put some money aside in saving account of wealthfront/betterment/personal capital for medical/financial emergencies (about 4-6 months expenses)
    And Invest the rest.
