Macy Watkins, Senior at Central Lee High School competed in an essay competition through Next Gen Personal Finance. Macy played the PAYBACK Game and then responded to the following prompt. “How will your college decision-making change because of the pandemic?” Next Gen sponsored the competition for any Junior or Senior across the country. Selected winners shared a $75,000 college scholarship. Although Macy’s essay was not selected as a winner, it was very well written and is shown below. After playing PAYBACK from Next Gen Personal Finance, I have a much better understanding of what to expect in college. PAYBACK has shown me that my decisions in college have a very strong impact on my future. Because COVID-19 has impacted how college will be for many students, I have decided that when I am looking for classes, I will also look to see what the school's protocols are in case the campus gets shut down. Also because of this pandemic, I will consider the costs of room and board as well depending on what may happen if I am sent back home. COVID-19 has changed the way that classes can be taught, and I want to make sure that I am making the best financial and educational decisions in order to receive a well-rounded education and be able to not accrue as much student loan debt while in college. While I am in the process of searching for colleges, I will make sure that I am being practical and saving as much as I can while still being able to be with my friends and family. During college, I will focus on my studies, spend time making lifelong connections with friends, have fun with my friends, and save money for life after college. PAYBACK has made it very clear that I need to use my time very wisely while balancing a well-maintained lifestyle throughout college. I now know that I need to make wise decisions before and during my college experience. #Proud2bCL #CTEworksforCL
