Word of Warning - We are not lawyers, but we know a "straw" purchase is illegal, and only fools will ask legality questions on the internet.
And what you describe is a straw purchase.
Wait until you are 21 and do things legally.
Don't get discouraged, and by the way, Welcome to the FTF. Please stop by the "Introductions" section.
