Hello, welcome to my blog! My name is Victor and I started this blog because I was inspire by Krystal Yee personal finance blog Give Me Back My Five Bucks. She have given me the confidences and motivations to achieve financial independence. Reading her blog made me realize I need to set my own financial goals and save for the future. I believe anyone is capable of achieving their financial goals and with some motivation and guidance; there is no debt that I can’t manage.
I am a university graduate from the University of Toronto; I hold a Bachelor of Art degree in Digital Enterprise Management. I currently work two jobs, I work full-time at Parmalat Canada as a Data Control Representative and I work part-time at Wal-Mart as a Photo Lab Technician.
On my day off, I like to participate in outdoor activities such as photography, playing basketball, hiking, dining out, and having a nice conversation with friends over coffee.
As of March 1st, 2011 I start my journey to paying off my $20,000 student loan debt. My goal is to have it paid off by September. It will take discipline; motivation, time management, and determination for me to achieve this financial goal. I know I can achieve it if I work hard and continue to budget the way I do. I will keep posting my progress on how I trim my student loan monthly in my daily post, I hope my dedication and determination of being debt free will inspire others who are also in debt with student loans.
