My classmates and I learned a lot about how to manage money and what life after high school will be like when we attended Finance 101. Not only did we learn, but we also had fun while we were there. We were able to participate in a hands on “game of life”. We were each given a set salary and tossed into a game that resembles the real world because just like life, unexpected events happened. Some of us were lucky and didn’t end up going into debt, but others were ambushed with misfortune and had to pay a lot of bills. There were also community members there who helped us walk through this giant board game, and gave us financial advice based off of their personal experiences managing money. I think this experience made us realize how important it is to manage your money and make good financial decisions.
