Philly’s Story

For Black History Month (February 2022), Philycia (Philly) was asked to tell us about a milestone she was proud of accomplishing. Below is her answer, written in her own words.

“One goal that I am proud of is not spending money on unnecessary things such as eating out a lot, driving places that I don’t necessarily need to go. I am proud of this because I used to spend a lot of money on things and not have enough money for the following week. Now, I can say that since I have learned self-control and really separated my wants from my needs, I have about $50 more per week. It might not be much but it is a start and I plan on being able to save more than $50 per week.”
