Dominique Shields on Alashia Trotter

Born on April 3rd, 18 year old Aries, Alashia Trotter is a senior at Career Academy. She hopes to be a Licensed Practical Nurse in the future, but while she is still in high school she is going down the hospitality pathway. She helps plan and work many events through her position at school. While she isn’t at school, Alashia likes to read, talk on the phone, study, and sit outside.  At OnTheMoneySTL, Alashia has a lot to offer, as well as to gain. She wants to have more experience in communications and earn money to set her up for the future. She knows that she contributes her photo and writing experience. Alashia’s financial goals are to save money and spend wisely. If she had $50,000, she would get a car and save the rest of her money. In five years, she plans to be a LPN with a nice car and home. When asked who she would put on the dollar bill, she said “Harriet Tubman, because she’s an inspirational and impactful woman.”

I would also like to talk about some things that I have learned about Alashia since I have been working with her. She is truly a kind spirited person. Only knowing her for a week, I believe we have grown a special bond. She is an easy person to work with and talk to, which is very important when she is someone I have to work with on a daily basis. I have seen her creative side and she has an interesting mind. I see good things in her future, both with OnTheMoneySTL and beyond.
