I am so happy to share the conversation I had with Renee on the Student Financial Health for Caribbean Millennials on WDJY FM.
We talked about how stressful the college journey can be for Caribbean Millennials, especially those who are the first in their family to navigate the college and financial aid system for the first time, and figuring out how to pay for college, without massive debt.

I also touched on the additional hurdles that Millennials who are Citizens and Green Card holders face when accessing financial aid in the U.S. and shared tips on how to understand the difference between grants, Federal and private student loans and how to minimize and avoid student loan debt.
