Meet Eliza

Eliza Kuhlow | Madison La Follette High School
Year in school:

Senior at Madison La Follette

When I grow up I want to be:

Enjoying life as a kindergarten teacher.

When I go to college, I would like to attend:

The University of South Florida

What do you like to do in your spare time?

At home, I enjoy family breakfast, relaxing, and spending time with friends and family. At school, I am the captain of the La Follette high school dance team and a member of Project Unified. I’m also a dance teacher and a coach at Madtown Twisters Gymnastics.

What’s your favorite subject?


When it comes to money, what would you like to learn?

I would love to learn how to budget my money in a smart and effective way, so that I will have a secure future as a teacher.

If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it?

I would travel the world, pay off my family’s debt, and set aside money towards future education for my brother and me. I would also love to buy a cute little house and retro car. I would donate the rest of the money, or create my own non‐profit charity organization.

What is the most exciting thing you have ever done?

I traveled to the Dominican Republic for my uncle’s wedding.

What have you done that really scared you?

Deciding to attend a school thousands of miles away from my family.

What excites you most about Project Teen Money?

Creating my financial plans for the future, and having knowledge on important topics. I am also excited to spread this knowledge to my peers in a fun and easy way.


“At the end of this challenge, I hope I feel confident in my ability to manage my finances and have a clear plan for the future.”
