Over the past three summers I have been attending, the World of Money Institute to educate myself on the power and importance of how to manage money. My mother and father put me into World of Money because they wanted me to be responsible and equipped with the tools to be successful with money. However, they also enrolled me because this program was something that they did not have when they were younger. Many adults say if only they had participated in this kind of program, if only they were more financially literate, if only they were determined not to be in debt, then they would have avoided many financial issues they faced in their youth.

I am grateful that I did have this opportunity to learn about money and also to become a better business woman. After being exposed to the world of money, I now am investing into stocks, I have a mutual fund (given to me by World of Money) and I am CEO of my own business called Nai Arts, where I create my own arts and sell to interested people. I am determined to be a pediatrician when I get older. I am determined to impact my society or community through philanthropic actions; specifically to donate to charities for other determined young people but do not have the resources they need. I am determined to do well in school so that I could get scholarships and won’t have to worry about paying my way through college.

As young women of America, let’s show the world that we are capable and determined to make a change. Let’s be responsible with our money, avoid the economic downfalls, and be successful business leaders. You have the potential to be anyone you want to be in this life, but it is up to you to control that.
