My name is Kiana Morales and I am a second year at the University of California, Santa Cruz double majoring in Business Management Economics and Computational Mathematics.
When I was younger my mom and I went through financial hardships and no one was there to help or guide us through those times. As part of my internship with Santa Cruz Community Ventures, I want to ensure that others don't have to go through the same hardships I went through and that they know how to utilize the resources available to them.
Specifically I want to reach out to teens girls that are in Middle School. They are the future and capable of realizing what they can change in their life and develop the skills they need to have strong financial capability.
