Abigail Gonzalez is a first generation from her family to attend the University of Arizona pursuing a major in Personal and Family Financial Planning with minors in Business Administration and Spanish. The Personal and Family Financial Planning is a new program offered at the University of Arizona’s Norton School of Family and Consumer Sciences, providing students the proper curriculum and internships to better prepare for the growing industry.
Being of Mexican heritage, Abigail grew aware of the absence of financial literacy in her culture and now strives to change this throughout her career in financial planning. For starters, she is participating in the Financial Planning Association of Southern Arizona pro-bono event. Providing education and information to individuals and families for financial success is how Abigail hopes to give back to her community.
