Cents in the City Blog

Cents in the City is a special blog written by 2018 Scholarship winner, Maya Blumenthal.

Here is what Maya says about her blog:

"Hey, I’m Maya. This is my first blog. I live in New York City, where I’m a student at Columbia University. When I moved here last fall as a freshman, I expected a whole range of new experiences but hadn’t thought so much about managing my money and all the different ways I am challenged to make smart financial choices.

So, with this blog, I am going to share my thoughts and experiences about the life of a college student in a big city, and the ways that money and finance come into play".
