At age 15, I started looking for ways to save money after my mom was struggling financially. I turned to coupons to save us money and was soon advising others on how to do the same.
At age 16, I managed to get a £600 shop for just 4p by using my coupons, which caught a lot of attention. The next few years of my life was spent trying to help other people do the same.
I still soldiered through despite a failed business attempt and over 6 months in bed after being diagnosed with a chronic illness – Crohn’s Disease, which I’m awaiting surgery for now.
Now just 5 years later, I write for the biggest financial website in the UK MoneySavingExpert, freelance for great companies like Centsai, regularly give quotes or comments to press and speak around the UK & USA about my money saving and personal experiences.
The one thing about me that you should know, is that I don’t give up. At least someone can be helped out there – and I don’t aim to stop until they are.
Oh… and you may have seen me in the news a few times for finding it cheaper to fly home via Berlin last year. That was cool!
