Meet Adeja

Adeja | Madison Memorial High School
Year in school:

Senior at Madison Memorial

When I grow up I want to be:

Working and making a positive difference in the area of criminal justice. 

When I go to college, I would like to attend:

Howard University

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I like to run track, hang out with friends and spend time with family. 

What’s your favorite subject?


When it comes to money, what would you like to learn?

I want to learn how to invest and learn more about credit.

If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it?

I would pay for my education including my mom and younger brother’s education. Then I would start my own business and take a nice trip.

What is the most exciting thing you have ever done?

Buying my first car because I had saved for a while and worked a lot so it made me proud I was able to do that.

What have you done that really scared you?

I had to present in front of everyone which made me nervous, but it went well.

What excites you most about Project Teen Money?

I’m looking forward to learning more about money management and hearing from others.


“At the end of this challenge, I hope that I am able to learn more about money and also teach others.”
