Thanks for visiting my little cranny on the web.
Just a twenty-something from western New York who found herself drowning in a butt load of debt two years ago and, after observing numerous folks trapped in similar situations, realized how a huge void existed when it came to financial awareness and education. Personal finances, investing and debt continue to be excruciatingly painful for many young people and nearly every aspect of our life is affected by these issues.
Broke-Ass Student is an empowering way for me to grasp my own financial complications while bringing others along on the journey with me. You can learn a bit more about my story here: By Taking Control of My Finances, I Took Back Control Of My Life.
Troubling I sit, day and night. My friends are astonished at me: They forgive my wanderings. I rest not from my great task: To open the eternal worlds! To open the immortal eyes of man inward: into the worlds of thought: into eternity. Ever expanding in the bosom of God, the human imagination. - William Blake
