"We [learned] how to be responsible with our money and [to separate] our needs from our wants. [JA] is a great area to learn new things and if you are into finance, this is something you want to do." -Rowan

"Even though, these sessions were introductions, I feel a little more prepared than when we started. In that way, I am so grateful because sometime during my years in college, my parents will expect me to be more financially responsible. With the information I have learned from JA, I won't struggle with that and my parents won't worry about me too much -Sofia

"We have gotten the opportunity to hear a lot of different speakers speak to us about their careers and their advice for us. My favorite speaker that came in talked about wedding planning. She started up her own business and it was really interesting to hear her perspective on taking the leap in business, how she started, and the entrepreneurial mindset." -Alena

"My biggest accomplishment would be getting into mayor. I'm also really good at being mayor because I'm good at writing speeches and I'm also really good at making creative solutions for different problems that come up." -Olivia
