Meet Charlotte

Charlotte | Madison West
Year in school:

Sophomore at Madison West

When I grow up I want to be:

A data scientist or economist   

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

University of Wisconsin-Madison or the University of Chicago

What do you like to do in your spare time?

In my free time, I love dancing, listening to podcasts and playing board games with my family. I also value getting involved with the Madison community through volunteering at food pantries and running fundraisers.

What’s your favorite subject?

I love math (particularly algebra and calculus) because of the exhilarating problem-solving it demands.

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

I would like to learn about how to effectively save and invest my money to help make smarter financial decisions in the future.

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

I would put half of it into future savings and my college fund, donate a third to local charities and use the rest to launch a business.

What is the most exciting thing you have ever done?

A few years ago, I attended the Commission of the Status of Women Youth Forum at the UN. There, I met countless inspirational young women from around the world using their voices to empower others and create change which was very exciting!

What have you done that really scared you?

I wrote a speech for an oratorical competition that forced me to present to a large number of people. At the time, it was very frightening, but I’m glad I had the opportunity to get better at public speaking.

What excites you most about Project Teen Money?

The prospect of being able to expand and share my knowledge of saving, spending and giving.

 

“At the end of this challenge, I hope that I will be able to provide engaging and informational resources for my peers that will encourage them to take initiative with their finances.”
