According to the FINRA Investor Education Foundation, young Americans 18-34 years old are more likely to be less financially capable than older Americans. To assist young adults in metro Atlanta in gaining financial know-how, Delta Community Credit Union (www.deltacommunitycu.com), Georgia’s largest credit union, created Quarterlife, an online platform to guide young adults through each stage of life – from high school, college, a first job, all the way to preparing the start of a family. To represent Quarterlifers in their financial journey, Delta Community announces its first Quarter Reporter, Ashley Bell, to share her financial experiences and tips with her peers.
“Ashley was among 23 applicants for our Quarter Reporter contest through radio station Q100,” explains Kembirley Henderson, young adult segment manager for Delta Community. “Ashley’s personality, social media knowledge, financial savvy and creativity made her stand out and we’re very excited to work with this talented, young Atlanta professional. We hope Quarterlifers will visit our website and follow Ashley’s journey through social media to gain insight into financial tips and tools specific to young adults.”
As the Quarter Reporter, Bell will connect with 18-34 year olds around metro Atlanta to share her financial experiences and gain insight into what young adults are doing to improve their financial status. Bell will also share these experiences through blogging, videos, social media, radio and selected public appearances.
