When my mother couldn't afford to give me money for lunch, I turned my locker into the one-stop shop for candy, pencils, and whatever toy was the latest fad. These were my first lessons in finances, and I have only learned more from there. Growing up in a poor and occasionally homeless household, I have faced more hardship than most children should⁠, but I am all the better for it. I am a daughter, a student, and a writer who’s found passion in literature, learning, and personal finance. I have turned paying for my own lunch into paying just as little for my college education and am currently studying journalism and psychology at Stony Brook University. Even when I'm not writing for work, I'm most likely still writing for fun or else urban exploring in whatever forests or abandoned buildings are closest to me.
