Today’s scholarship essay is by Taylor Fouts. She shares how her grandparents taught her personal finance lessons from an early age and made all the difference in her financial life.
I was taught about personal finance at a very young age. From playing with the toy cash register to counting worms to make money in our family business, I was constantly learning about money.
I started making money at a young age. My grandparents taught me the importance of making money, and how not to spend every cent of my paycheck the day I get it.
My grandparents have helped me learn the importance of saving money, I like to think I am good at making sure I do not blow my money and always making sure I have enough in the bank to cover my bills.
My grandma taught me about how to use a credit card appropriately and how to pay my own bills on time or in advanced to avoid those darn late fees.
