Personal Quote

As someone who was against the use of credit cards in the past due to a lack of information on the financial tool, I’ve been fascinated by the ways we can make credit cards work for us when armed with the right knowledge. My goal is to provide people, especially young people and marginalized communities, with myth-busting knowledge about credit cards, how they work and how we can leverage this tool to make our money work for us.
