Meet Nyagoah

2018 Project Teen Money Nyagoah senior volunteer club member

Nyagoah, a senior at East, would like to be successful in various ways, and happy. She would like to attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

What’s your favorite subject?

Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) or English

What do you like to do in your spare time?

"I'm a member of the EHS Africa Club and Black Student Union, and I'm also active in my community through Dane County TimeBank Youth Court and African American Youth Council. Last summer, I spent time as an intern at the Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center (WIPAC)."

What is the most exciting thing you’ve ever done? 

 “I don’t’ know how to answer this, this is something I need to answer soon, though. Maybe I’ll go skydiving.”

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

 “I want to learn how to invest money, so later on I can make a profit. I’d also like to learn how to save more, rather than spending it all.”

What has scared you the most?

 “Making a confession to a person in my life.” 

What would you do with $1 million?

 “I would invest in a company; give to the people in my home country, South Sudan, to help build homes; a hospital and a school. I would also help my family and friends, and pay off my debt.” 

What excites you most about Project Teen Money?

 “I’m excited to come up with amazing and cool ideas for my videos, and to see the videos made by others.”

“At the end of this challenge, I hope that I will have learned tips and tricks about money and how to use it, but I also hope to win!”
