Set goals and save for them - Milestone 6

“I made my dream of going to Greece and Italy a reality. I worked overtime and took on a second job to make it happen. It was amazing. I used my FAIRWINDS account as my vacation account. It was so inspiring to see the money increase until I had enough to go on this once in a lifetime trip. I am single, lived alone and had a basic income. I was able to save by only spending on essentials and focusing on my end goal.”
