Money Education For Young Minds
How I got here
Click here to read Previous message: So, whose idea is this?
My journey started in 2014, when I started managing OoberKidsdRepublic.
Money Factor followed two years later. At first I was nervous about visiting schools to educate youngsters about money. I wondered whether I was up to this challenge, that's when my teaching DNA kicked in!
Readers - teaching is a family obsession: I have been surrounded by teachers all my life. My mother, most of my aunts (and their friends) and many of my cousins taught and still teach.
In my rebellious youth, I decided I would not (NO, NEIN, NON, NEE, LA, NYET) follow the family teaching tradition and I became a journalist instead.
After writing so much and so long about the investment strategies of large and sophisticated investors, I came to the conclusion that the best, wisest, shrewdest investment is education (mummy, look: you were right all along!!)
And so, it came to pass that, 11 years into my journalism career, I set up OoberKidsRepublic, to provide 'Fun-ancial' education to young minds and get them started on the road to financial awareness!
