Inspiration was drawn from my own inexperiences and my peers inexperiences of understanding how to handle money or knowing what things money could do. Money is often a taboo topic rarely talked about in schools. However, schools should be initiating the conversation about how to handle money effectively so students don't fall into debt or so students get to apply the general finance tips to their own lives.

What's next for Gamel
Some things that are upcoming are adding my own coded finance games to the Pro+ feature. In order to fufill this task the best I plan on learning about finance myself so I could share the education and knowledge with other students like me. If this upcoming generation is equipped with this knowledge about money then a lot of choices about our society, when it comes to poverty and other economic situations, can be changed.
