Patrina Dixon – Financial Services Professional & Financial Literacy Advocate
Hello. I have a great passion to educate our youth and young adults to become financially literate. I did not get this information when I was a young girl and believe if I had I would have not made some of the mistakes I did before my eyes were opened. Once I learned, then applied what I learned it became very easy. I am excited that I have the opportunity to help someone learn earlier in life. I also welcome the opportunity to help educate adults that may benefit from what I have learned along the way.
Many of our young people are spending and borrowing without knowing that interest builds up, or that credit cards aren’t free money.
