UCLA Financial Wellness Program

Hi everyone! My name is Emmy and I'm the Research and Assessment Financial Wellness Peer Coach for this 2023-2024 school year! This will be my second year with Financial Wellness and I’m looking forward to a great year. I'm a fourth year undergraduate student, majoring in Economics and minoring in Entrepreneurship. My hometown is in the San Fernando Valley, 20 minutes north of UCLA without any traffic. In my free time, I enjoy longboarding, working out, exploring new music, and reading books!

I joined Financial Wellness because I believe that no matter what anyone's background is, it is so important to be financially well. Growing up as a first gen student, I've seen first hand how crucial it is to be financially literate, since money affects everyone. Seeing how the UCLA community has supported me so much these past few years, I want to give back to fellow Bruins to provide support with one of my favorite things to talk about: navigating the world of personal finance.

My favorite money advice is to start investing in a Roth IRA asap for retirement! You definitely want to take advantage of the tax advantages early to make sure your money grows for as long as possible since it’ll grow TAX FREE!!

I look forward to supporting you with anything regarding personal finance, feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns!
