In this week’s episode we spoke to Nataya Walker, the Founder and Executive Director of Seeds of Fortune – a non-profit that began with Nitiya’s own quest to finish school without any student loan debt. In addition to her day-day job Nitiya helps high school women of color in the US navigate the college scholarship and application process and learn financial literacy.
She made it on Forbes 30 under 30 list in 2020 and she has helped college applicants earn over $8 million dollars towards scholarships and grants since she started Seeds of Fortune during her senior year at Babson College in 2014. Her team of 15 recruits a cohort of 30 students every year and serves nearly 500 teens free resources online.
We talk about higher education system in the US, the lack of financial literacy and we question whether greater transparency when it comes to disclosing our salaries is welcome. This episode is all things money.
