She’s considering college down the line, but right now she wants a career path that will help her avoid debt and give her a strong, broadly applicable skill set so she has lots of options in the future.
I might want to go to college eventually, but for now I want to keep my options open. I played basketball and volleyball in high school, and I like being on a team and pushing myself to keep getting better. I also want to be smart with money now, start saving and stay clear of debt. That way I can go wherever I want in the future.
With Money Path, I found out that a career in the military covers housing and has lots of other great benefits. I don’t have to worry about my living expenses, and I can learn skills that could help me in a bunch of different fields once I’m done serving. I get education benefits too. That means if I decide to go to college later I won’t have to take out any student loans. I can start saving now for the future I want, almost $6,000 a year. I’m excited about all the choices that this opens up for me.
