Being a student ambassador was the perfect way to get my foot in the door as an aspiring financial advisor because I got to scan in hundreds of people into the sessions and have little conversations with many of them.

I was nervous as NAPFA was my first ever conference, but the other student ambassadors really helped to lift the nerves. I would recommend being a student ambassador to any college student interested in financial planning!
