Hey guys/ladies! I just wanted to share a really great opportunity for those who are in school. Last year, I was fortunate to be selected as one of the twelve scholarship recipients of SECU.

My not so little sister Krystal

What an eventful weekend it was! Not only did I have a 3-day weekend, but I also commemorated the late Dr. King on Monday by attending a couple of service and discussion events. I met some new faces, ate good food and picked up a new book to read. The weekend kicked off with my

Finance tip: Using promotional rates

Ahhhh, you open the mail and see an offer for a new credit card to your favorite store with a “deferred interest” promotion tag and you jump on it. Truly a blessing if you have decent credit and qualify for the perk! Imagine buying that slick pair of Yeezy’s with the iridescent look, and paying
