    S2Ep05: Credit Cards, Investing and Saving tips ft. The Rich Immigrant

    Financial Knowledge is very important in the life of every individual, and as International Students it is extremely important to know what you can and cannot do when it comes to your finances, using credit cards, and so much more.

    We caught up with The Rich Immigrant, for the second part of our conversation, to learn a couple of tips on using credit cards effectively, saving and investing as an international student.

    She is a 3-time immigrant, an executive at a large global firm, a recovering procrastinator, a travel blogger. We loved catching up with Dee because she shared so much financial nuggets you need to hear about.

    From the Founder, "It was created to be what I wish existed when I moved to the United States 18 years ago, and it is what we need to thrive as a community of 1st and 2nd generation immigrants"
