              It depends on a few factors such as your situation and how much are you looking to put aside monthly, etc.

              Are you currently a student or graduate looking for work?

              As a student, you may want to consider saving from your monthly allowance as that is like your income. You can also consider how likely are you going to touch the 10k while you are studying, and how much are you willing to put it in another financial instrument.
