Hello Everyone. I'm a member of this board however I haven't posted in a while. Can anybody answer my question?

I'm a college student who opened too many credit cards and have a few of them that were charged off. Since I'm still in school I vowed to myself that I would not let these debts go for too long without being paid. It is now summer vacation and I want to get a job so I can pay them off. I was wondering if after I did pay them off would it be possible for my mom to get me a card using her credit that would also help me rebuild my credit? Please help. Thanks in advance.

I was also thinking about getting a secure credit card after clearing up all this mess. IF the first option is possible, which is the better choice to make and why? Thanks again.
