LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Scanning the earnest young faces gathered for Career Day on June 6th at Hooper Elementary School in Los Angeles, Michelle Marquez of Marquez Private Wealth of Raymond James relished the opportunity to share her profession with seventy-five high achieving fifth graders. Juxtaposed against a school campus where an overwhelming majority of students come from low income homes, it was particularly fitting that Michelle Marquez spoke about financial literacy and about her career as a successful professional financial advisor. She shared moving examples from her own youth and the concrete steps she took to arrive at her current level of success. Impressing upon her young listeners the vital and fundamental concepts of saving a percentage of earnings, managing expenses, planning for goals, and compounding interest, she shared examples of how a disciplined approach can make a difference in their future financial life. What she does for families on a daily basis to plan for their goals and expenses were described in age appropriate, relevant terms to convey clear understanding. Numerous scenarios were discussed with the curious students and Michelle fielded a healthy amount of questions following her presentation.
Completely in tune with her audience, Michelle not only planted pivotal seeds of “what ifs?” into the students’ minds to dream big about their tomorrows, she also gave them tangible reminders to encourage them to keep tooling and re-tooling those dreams long after she leaves. Age appropriate books on financial literacy, a famous children’s money board game, and granola bars were given to every student to conclude her successful Career Day participation at Hooper Elementary School, a member of the LAUSD.
