Thanks to our partner Suntrust Bank, we launched our 2018 “Money Talks” speaker series in February. The series engages UNL Academy students, social media platform viewers, and panelists from various professional backgrounds in an empowering dialogue on financial topics. The talks help develop financial literacy, empower students with tools to make informed financial decisions and expose students to various career opportunities and innovative financial strategies.
Guest panelists have the opportunity to participate in a face-to-face discussion with UNL Academy students. February’s topic was “What Is Your Money Saying About YOU?”. The event was hosted by UNL’s James Harris and our Moderator was Ammon Lyle, Talent Deal Analyst for the Walt Disney Corporation, LA. Panelists included Tyriq Wynn, author of Green Is The Thing! Money Management For Kids, Rica G., founder of The CYPHER Program, Michael Supreme, founder of Youth Helping Youth and Vanecia Thompson, featured artist and UNL Program Coordinator.
