Samuels grew up in the projects of New York in a single-parent home. As every child in that situation dreams, he had big plans to get himself and his family out of that situation and into a better life. Needless to say, he succeeded and now aims to bring all underserved community members along with him. Samuels was offered the opportunity to join a Wall Street firm upon graduating college. It was here that he discovered a key point that influenced his current project: People want more than financial literacy; they want engagement. This pivotal realization motivated Samuels to create the first-ever gaming-learning app, a blend of technology and reward-based (somewhat addictive) enjoyment. “If you walk into an auditorium full of high school students today and ask how many of them own or carry a checkbook, barely two might raise their hands,” said Samuels. “In fact, we’ve tested and proven this. Conversely, if you ask those same students how many of them have heard of or own cryptocurrency, the percentage will be much higher — if you are at the right school. “The disparate knowledge between schools with higher funding versus less is a markedly different outcome when it comes to financial literacy. That is what we are fighting against with this program. We want schools, and even curious adults, to have the tools necessary to keep their finances happy, healthy, and controlled.” - D.
