Younger Daughter Always Giving Back

Younger Daughter Always Giving Back

I’ve never been a saver. I’ve always been a spender. So it didn’t come as a surprise to me that by the time my eldest was researching universities, I didn’t magically have enough money in the bank to pay for it. The shock and sense of uncertainty were enough to scare me into fixing it right away, and once I did, I promised myself I would not be in the same position eight years from now when my younger daughter is ready to choose her post-secondary “next step”.

My eldest daughter knew pretty much through high school that she wanted to go to university and study business (marketing). She loves presenting, she loves being creative, and she loves the business environment. It’s a great fit for her, and she’ll go far.

My younger daughter says she wants to become a marine biologist, but I see a very community-minded girl. She belongs to many clubs at school, with her favourite being “Fitness Friends” through which she spends time with developmentally-challenged students to ensure they’re included in games and are also having fun at recess and school events.

I can’t wait to find out where her talents and interests will lead her, and I will make sure I’m ready financially for whatever form that takes! RESP account here I come. It’s catch-up time.

Although full of opinions, I often find myself nodding and smiling. Don't you? Doesn't mean I agree. I'm just being polite.
