My name is Kadin Marshall and I am a junior Finance major here at West Chester University. Upon graduation, I plan to obtain my MBA and become a financial planner for either a large company or my own private firm. In addition to that, I would like to volunteer my knowledge and educate people in my community about financial literacy as well. I am very happy to be a financial literacy ambassador this year, and I am looking forward to having a fun and exciting year here at West Chester University.
Hello, my name is Jessica Peoples. I am currently a junior here at West Chester University. I am majoring in Middle Grades Preparation, with concentrations in reading and mathematics. Here at West Chester University, I am a WCU Life Skills Ambassador; meaning that I teach others the various different methods to guide them in making the best financial decisions possible. After I graduate, I am extremely excited about the opportunity to work with children, and to have the ability to watch them learn and grow just as I did as a student.

My name is Reginald Nash III, and I am a Finance major here at West Chester University. As a junior, I am very involved in extracurricular activities and am currently hoping to enter Greek life on campus. My plans after graduation are not completely mapped out yet. I would like to either get my MBA in Finance and become a Portfolio Manager, or enter law school. I am very happy to be given the opportunity to become a financial literacy ambassador. I am looking forward to this year and all the adventures that it brings. I know this will be a great resume-building experience and I look forward to working with my new team.
My name is Tracy Zelnick and I am a junior here at West Chester University. I am majoring in finance with a minor in communication studies. After graduation, I hope to have a job in the business field and maybe continue my education and get my MBA. I am excited to be a WCU Life Skills Ambassador this year because I think it is important for students to know how to budget their finances and to have a plan for spending their money.
