Summer Series: Budgeting Tips by Berna Anat

Budgeting Tips by Berna Anat:

This week on NGPF's Summer Series, we highlight a series of three videos put together by Berna Anat, also known as @heyberna on social media, in partnership with Aerie.


Berna unpacks the budgeting and saving process for those who may not earn a high income, may identify as first-generation Americans, first-generation college grads, or those who identify as part of a marginalized community such as low-income or communities of color. Berna uses everyday lingo to translate the jargon of the traditional financial sector in a way that generation Z can relate to. 


Watch the three part series below:

Part 1: Budgeting Tips by Financial “Hype Woman” Berna Anat


Part 2: Budgeting Tips by Berna Anat (Part 2)


Part 3: Financial Tips by Berna Anat (Part 3): Reducing Debt


What do you think of the series? Let us know in our educators-only online forum, FinLit Fanatics.
