Hello, my name is Trisha!
I am a senior in high school. I am passionate about learning and educating children about financial awareness so they can plan for their future. I also feel really great when I empower children with knowledge so they can be educated for the grown up world.
Elementary School Age
These are the skills kids of an early age should focus on: Counting and basic math skills. Being comfortable with numbers, identifying coins and bills, learning about needs versus wants. Being able to grasp the concept of spend, save and give.
Middle School Age
Financial Literacy classes teaches students the basics of money management. Savings, debts, investments and budgeting are a few of them. This knowledge lays a foundation for students to build financial habits, practice them very early in life, and avoid the complications that lead to lifelong financial struggles.
High School Age
Most high school students have limited financial literacy education prior to college. They are on the cusp of living on their own and making important financial decisions that will impact their futures.
