“ I found myself at the same precipice with the same question and that is why I am here again, today. If we truly want to create change in a sustainable manner, we must address and investigate the problem at hand. Reflecting and researching the original question, I realized financial literacy is not accessible to minority populations, thus it perpetuates a system of racial and gender discrimination. “ says Chohan.
