Let's Get Financially Lit!
In many immigrant households, money isn’t often a topic of discussion, so financial education can be minimal—especially when a family is just trying to survive the day-to-day.
Despite being the largest minority group in the United States, the Latino community still faces cultural and systemic barriers that prevent them from building wealth. As a first-generation Latina, Jannese Torres, award-winning money expert, educator, and speaker and podcaster, knows these unique challenges well.
She set out to pursue the traditional American Dream, becoming the first woman in her family to graduate from college, climbed her way up the corporate ladder, and secure the six-figure paycheck, only to find herself miserable and unfulfilled. She soon realized that everything she’d been taught about money and success wasn’t as it seemed.
After discovering the true meaning of wealth, Torres resolved to forge her own path, leaving the life she was told she should want for one of entrepreneurship, autonomy, and financial freedom.
