Fun Fact 🇬🇭 “I went to Ghana this summer to get out of my comfort zone. I like to travel, even though that’s the only time I’ve been out of the country. I did a lot of financial education with the women partnered with a fair-trade organization. More literacy than well-being focused. I enjoyed the people, the experience and the broadening of my horizons. Ghana’s a beautiful place with beautiful people.” What do you enjoy most about your role? 🏦 “I love how it intersects my passion for personal finance with my passion for the student body.

If you don’t understand your credit or your debt, it’s going to have a negative impact if you don’t have it straightened out.” Shoot us a message here as you continue your fight!
