The objective of a financial planning appointment is to go over financial aid eligibility with students, including thorough explanations of differences between funding sources. In the event that financial aid does not fully cover tuition, this meeting provides us an opportunity to go over options in how students can cover their remaining balance owed to the school. We want students to leave these meetings feeling confident in knowing all of their options, and knowing that we are a resource for them.

Growing up in the projects, not a lot of people were motivated to go to college. I vowed that whatever I do in life, I wanted to encourage students to go to college and make it out of the projects – out of poverty – just like I was doing at that time. When I was applying to colleges, financial aid was a really scary and intimidating process so I empathize with students going though this same process. I am proud that I can make direct change in students’ lives and show them that there are so many resources and ways to get through school and start pursing your dreams.

I have had many students tell me that they felt stressed/ anxious/ worried about figuring out a financial plan for school up until our meetings. The connections I am building with students and potential students is an accomplishment I am proud of. Recently, I have received a few hugs from students I am helping which made me feel like I am making a difference in their experience!
SO many! I love the smell of Cherry Almond products, and the effect of Botanical Repair products.
