Hey, I know some of you. If not, I’m the Luxe Strategist and for the past two months, I’ve been blogging it up over here. I found these forums because the amazing @TheFrugalGene told me I should join! I live in New York City, and my main MO is to show that you don’t have to be a trust fund kid to have an awesome life here. My parents were refugees and were basically clueless about the American way, so I kind of blindly felt my way through learning about money. But then the Internet happened, and I got hooked on everything personal finance.
At the end of the day, I’m an immigrant’s kid with expensive tastes
Some fun facts about me:
-I used to post on the Mr. Money Mustache forums and just dug up my account from 2013. I’m pretty sure he’d face-punch me for my spends, but I still like his philosophies, anyway.
-I don’t know how to use a lawn mower because I’ve never lived in a house before (parents always rented).
-I went to school in the middle of nowhere, so instead of doing my homework I spent my days learning how to play hacky sack. If we ever meet in person, a hack circle is totally happening.
-My go-to karaoke song is Outkast’s ‘Hey Ya!’ because it’s fun to do the magic fingers dance.
I’m looking forward to talking shop on the forums! I’m a pretty quick study in terms of design and digital tools, so happy to help others out.
