Humans of SD – Derek Torres

“I was in my room thinking about how to make a lot of money fast and thought about investing in something that I can afford, so I looked up YouTube videos. I watched tons of videos, but I needed a lot more money to start, so I gave up and took an hour long nap. When I woke up I got a notification of a guy on OfferUp that wanted my supreme hoodie for a lot more money than what I payed for, so next day I sold it. I’m $300 richer than I was before and I had the idea to start buying Supreme for cheap, or used and clean them up to sell them for two, or three times more than I payed for.  Next day passed and I came across a guy on OfferUp that was selling a really hyped supreme bag for really cheap. I thought to myself it was a fake, but I looked at it and watched many videos about how to check if it’s fake or not and found out the bag was real. I immediately told the guy I would buy it, and I did. When I got the bag, I sold it immediately for five times than what I payed for and started making a lot of money fast. So, I go on OfferUp more and buy more supreme for cheap and keep reselling to keep making tons of profit. Now I’m as happy as I can be. If people need somebody to get something hyped, that would be me.”
