This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. When Tanvee was in 8th grade, she presented her idea to her schools TED-Ed club. She asked the question, "Why don't schools teach our youth how to properly manage their finances?" It is a simple concept, but one that most schools in the United States don't address.

Is a Freshman at Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, Illinois. For almost 2 years, she has been on a mission to change curriculum standards in Illinois to include a course relating to student finances.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
