CV 2017 Workshop Ad Bay view.fw

There have been some changes to the way high school students apply to FAFSA. Families need to know what the changes are, what the important dates not to miss are, and how to get students graduated from college not mired in debt.

Financial education speaker and the author of “10 Things College Students Need to Know About Money” Shay Olivarria will be facilitating a FREE workshop in San Diego, CA to help families figure it all out.

In this dynamic one hour workshop students and parents will learn about the changes to the FAFSA application, scholarships, student loan types, and repayment options.

Families will leave with a handout of important terms, tips, and dates. Graduating from college is not just about having the grades to get in. It’s about finding a school that’s a good fit, paying for it without going broke, and creating a network to build a career.

Financial education speaker and author Shay Olivarria is featured in this month’s Finding Love Magazine. She talks about sticking out from her peers and being kind of … odd.

Shay Olivarria is a wonderful, loving person. She’s run her own financial education business, Bigger Than Your Block, for five years. She’s earned an undergraduate degree and studied for a graduate degree. She’s traveled to nine countries on three continents. By every definition she’s accomplished, so why didn’t she love herself?

 

 

 

Turn to page 14 and check out Shay’s article in Finding Love Magazine this month.

I’m working through my issues. They are definitely not over yet, maybe they never will be. I’m better than I was, though and that’s all that matters to me. I’m still considered strange to most people I meet. I still have to give myself pep talks before I step on stage. My jokes still fall flat sometimes, but who cares? We’re all works in progress and right now I’m having a great time settling into myself.
