Financial Literacy;an Achievement To The Young Generation.

This piece tends to outline and paraphrase the benefits of financial literacy to youngsters,thus, Stressing the need for young people to be independent.

As youngsters, We go to schools, colleges, and universities to complete our education and start earning our livelihood. We take up jobs, practice professions, or start our own businesses so that we can earn money to make our living. But which of these institutions makes us capable of managing our own hard-earned money? Probably a very few of them. 

Our ability to effectively manage our money by drawing systematic budgets, paying off our debts, making buying and selling decisions, and ultimately becoming financially self-sustainable is known as financial literacy. Financial literacy is knowing the basic financial management principles and applying them in our day-to-day life. But then, What does it Involve? 

From simple practices like keeping track of our expenses and understanding the need to spend money (if we like a product) to strike a balance between the value of time saved and money lost. 

As youngsters, we are expected to know the nitty-gritty of financial management. And managing our own money in a way that does not affect our family and us in a negative way, of course, is a very important note to be taken. We certainly do not want to end up having a day with no money at hand and hunger in our stomachs.

With all these in mind, we can then answer the question, "Why is Financial Literacy so Important to young people?" Financial literacy enables a young person to build up a budgetary guide to distinguish what he/she buys, what is spent, and what is owed. Financial literacy helps young people in becoming independent and self-sufficient. It empowers you with basic knowledge of investment options, financial markets, capital budgeting, etc., which could set a good bar ground for the youngster's future financial comfortability.

Understanding your money mitigates the danger of facing a fraud-like situation (especially in a world where most youngsters are interested in quick, easy online money). A few strategies are anything but difficult to accept, particularly when they're originating from somebody who is, by all accounts, learned and planned. Basic knowledge of financial literacy will be of great help in foreseeing the risks and arguing/justifying with anyone who has learned and is well-informed in the labor market.
