Interview with William Oswald, National Director of Money Mentors at NextGenVest
By Amanda Draper, National Content and Social Media Director at NextGenVest
How I’m involved
I am an orientation leader! So I help all the freshman get adjusted to college through new student orientation events and a Freshman O class every fall!
Some of my hobbies
To be honest, I am a workaholic! But I also like to work out and play video games (and of course watch Netflix!)
What I Want High School Students to Know
I wish I knew that sometimes as much as you dislike where you are, you will learn to appreciate it once you are gone. I had issues with my hometown but now I look forward to going home every time I visit.
My favorite class so far
The best class I have taken has to be my Student Leadership class! All orientation leaders must take this every semester to learn about the campus and just learn how to lead by example, etc. It has been amazing getting to know everyone and growing with them in these classes.
My plans for after I graduate
I hope to work with Microsoft, either as a Product Manager or in Operations, they both interest me a lot. I shadowed a Microsoft outlet to learn about the company my freshman year and just fell in love with it!
Working at NextGenVest
I have been with NextGenVest for over a year and a half and I have loved every second of it. There was even one time a kid texted in and he was so grateful, thanking me for just talking with him and educating him. Get a Money Mentor of your own here http://ngv.io/match.
