23-Year-Old Lauren Simmons is the Youngest and only Female full-time Trader at the New York Stock Exchange



23-year-old Lauren Simmons is a graduate of Genetics with a minor in Statistics, and has become the youngest and the only female full-time trader on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.

Lauren described her experience as “surreal” to CNBC, adding that when she tells people what she does for a living, “they are always surprised.”

Lauren works as an equity trader for Rosenblatt Securities, despite her educational background.

Her plan had been to pursue a career in the medical field, but after discovering it wasn’t for her, she started applying to positions in finance.

Before her employment was made permanent, Lauren said she had a month to take the exam all floor brokers must pass, the Series 19, and, she said:

When I tell you a lot of people did not think I was going to pass, they really did not think I was going to pass.

But she passed! And now, she’s breaking boundaries.

Watch her tell her story below:

    Funny how jealous, scared, and paranoid some entitled but yet loser white (or Asian) males get when they hear of a successful Black women in this kind of territory. Suddenly its some kind of liberal or leftist agenda(??) Only they should get opportunities in this world. No one else. Whine, Whine. Your time has been over for a while now. Get used to it. Btw, she or boss might be a republican or conservative. How does “john” know what her affiliation is? Ultimately she proved she was good at her job and passed the exams with a high score. Reality hurts.
