Sonja, Owning Your Financial Future Workshop
Nafasi's course on financial education was absolutely incredible and I would recommend it to anyone. The course was extremely thorough, starting with the history of money and moving through to budgeting. This class left me with not only a broader understanding of money, economics, and personal finances, but also a hands on understanding of my own spending habits and a plan for the future. I also thought it was very important how issues of race and class were woven through the course, adding an even further level of intersectional understanding. I can't wait to take more classes with Nafasi as this course exposed how much I still have to learn and pushed me to start asking questions that I hadn't even considered.

I liked seeing all the diversity here, that everyone connected in some type of way... it doesn’t matter what we look like, where we come from, how old we are, it was just wonderful to see everyone come together.

The materials presented here will help me talk to my students about the history of race, discrimination and slavery.
Alana, Financial Coaching Client
I came to Narratives Unbound for help with my budget after I graduated from college. I was feeling super overwhelmed with my student debt and I didn’t know what first steps I needed to take. I’m very grateful for Nafasi’s help! She worked with me to create my first budget and taught me how to set achievable financial goals for myself. Because of her coaching, I was able to reach my savings goal, open a life insurance policy, and refinance my loan to fit my budget! Narratives Unbound helped me rebuild my relationship with money. I can’t recommend their services enough!

The best aspect of the workshop was being able to hear from others and learn about their perspectives.
Adult Participant, Capstone Workshop April 2015
I think its interesting that we come here to talk about how we can break these divides, these divisions that divide us, and specifically about race and class, and I sit here and I look around at the circle and I see we all look so different, but at the end we all came together and we created beauty, together. That’s really cool because we are addressing the problem, but are also offering a solution.

I came in knowing nothing and feeling lost about my finances. I really appreciated the breakdown of credit and retirement funds.
