A note from the Author
Hey, there! I’m Okeoma Moronu a corporate finance attorney, mother of two and former teacher. I graduated from Columbia Law School in 2011 with over $200,000 in student loans and I am proud to say that I have since paid off those loans. In the process of becoming debt-free I became quite the personal finance nerd.
My hope is that the Money Monsters series will create opportunities for parents, teachers, and educators to have money conversations with children that will spark an interest and develop a curiosity, comfort and confidence that will last a lifetime.
