I aspire to be a leader in financial education to help other women, first-generation college graduates and anyone else who desires to be financially literate. The Edelman Financial Engines scholarship enabled me to enroll in the CFP® course at Bryant University, making me closer to becoming a leader in my community and bridging the gender gap in the finance industry.
