If you are in college or you are a senior in high school, getting more money for school is on the forefront of your mind. Paying for college can be really stressful, can leave you in a huge amount of debt, and sometimes prevent you from going to your top school.
Well, I had the opportunity to chat with Amira Yahyaoui, the CEO of Mos, which is a platform that helps students pay for college through simplifying access to financial aid. She explains what students tend to forget when applying for more money, and explains the process of how Mos can help you stay debt free.
Amira was also a human rights activist in her home country Tunisia. She has experienced many obstacles such as, being exiled from her country in 2002 for protesting against the government. Amira talked about her journey as an activist and gave some advice for young activists who are constantly on the front lines right now.
I am thankful for Amira and Mos because in August I was one of the recipients of their Black Students Matter Scholarship! It was great to be acknowledged and awarded in what seemed like the climax of the Pandemic.
I was so wonderful to chat with Amira! Her story and her passion is so inspiring, and I’ve learned so much just by chatting with her. Please watch this interview for some valuable information on how to pay for school!
