What do you like to do in your spare time?
I play the cello in several groups, including Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestra and Madison Cello Ensemble. I am the president of my 4H club and I ride and show my horse throughout the year. I am involved in Science Olympiad and the We Are La Follette group at my high school. I nanny on the weekends for a 10 year old. I love to play music, draw and write stories.
What’s your favorite subject?
When it comes to money, what would you like to learn?
I want to continue to learn how to be fiscally responsible with my money through saving and investing.
If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it?
I would set aside a large chunk of money to finance college. I would then invest a portion in mutual funds, purchase a rental property and donate money to Greater Madison Resource Center to help people who are currently homeless.
What is the most exciting thing you have ever done?
I went to Istanbul, Turkey several years ago with my family. The experience and culture were unlike anything I had experienced before. The food and architecture were amazing and the people were so warm and friendly. We went to the same place for breakfast each morning that was owned by a family. Although we spoke very little Turkish, we were able to communicate with one another through our love of cats and food.
What have you done that really scared you?
I had a final group presentation in AP Seminar last year and was terrified of speaking in front of my peers. I made sure I rehearsed, was really well prepared and encouraged my group members to do the same. We nailed the presentation!
What excites you most about Project Teen Money?
Getting others excited in thinking about money and the prospect of getting a generous contribution to my college fund really excites me.
“At the end of this challenge, I hope that I will have motivated or inspired at least one person to get involved with this project next year.”
