“If I think about what life was like for girls before the pandemic compared to now, what I think changed for most girls is that they put savings as a priority because most girls you can talk to tell you that they didn’t expect what happened but now they save so that in the future nothing happens and they end up dying of hunger. During that time, they tell you that there are some things they would need and fail to get them and if they had saved, that would have never happened. They tell you that saving is nice.”
