Her first money memory
When she was a college, she remembers her family not having enough money, but always had a lot of pride. Her parents always said they don’t need a lot of material things in their life.
Her worst money memory
Her worst money memory was figuring out how to not give up on her monthly expenses that she wanted to have in her life, not be able to save and still live a life she loved.
Her best money memory
In high school, when she was making money as a waitress, she was able to buy what she wanted. This was very empowering for her to be able to pay her way instead of asking her parents for money.
