if I use and pay a credit card that I'm authorized in, does it built my credit score?
My mom added me to her account, she has good credit. I'm looking to built my own credit because I need to apply soon for student loans. I don't know if I should get a credit card in my name to do so. I'm afraid it will hurt my credit since I'm only a year away to apply for the loan.
