How My Parents’ Sacrifices Made My Future Bright
When Sarah Wall was a baby, her dad was early in his mechanical engineering career, having just graduated from Old Dominion University just five months before she was born.
Not only had he just started a full-time career, but he and his wife were also in the middle of renovating their historic home in Portsmouth, Va. Needless to say, with all that and a new baby, there were plenty of ways to put their money to good use!
Still, they wanted to make sure that Sarah was set up for success, and they did that by investing in her future with Virginia529. Over the years, Sarah's parents consistently put aside a portion of their income for her education, instilling in her a respect for saving and avoidance of debt that benefits her to this day.
