Isabell Agumbah: An Empath for Immigrants
Isabell Agumbah has a love and passion for her industry and wants to spread her financial know-how with her surrounding community. She particularly loves to help immigrants, as she, too, was once an immigrant. Isabell aims to enlighten them on how to get a solid financial footing in this country after their long travels here. Isabell wants to extend her reach to Kenya, her place of origin, with her financial services, as she feels so grateful for all that America has provided her. Her goal is to help Kenyans understand how personal finance works to offer them a more holistic approach to their financial situations.
Part of what drives Isabell Agumbah is that according to immigration data from 2014, approximately 13.3% of the 318.9 billion people in the United States are immigrants. Immigrants, representing such a large chunk of the US population, bring unique skills to the table that as a country, America needs to focus on, represent, and support. Immigrants have plenty to offer, but oftentimes, their language barriers and lack of understanding about the US economy make it exceedingly difficult to obtain a steady job that pays well. Because of this, Isabell desires to connect with immigrants and teach them about personal finance.
Isabell Agumbah’s initiative is fueled by the fact that many immigrants are disadvantaged because they do not have a working understanding of how things function in the country. Her literacy program will touch on tax codes, stock markets retirement planning, and life and funeral insurance. She hopes to inculcate a culture of financial responsibility and security into these people one day with all her skills and resources.
Eventually, Isabell Agumbah is keen on extending her services to her country of birth. She believes that she can integrate the principles that prop the U.S economy into the social dynamics of her home country’s economy to give a more holistic approach towards finance. She is a proponent of real estate investment as a mode of reinforcing financial security for individuals and their families. Other than her interest in finance, Isabell also loves indulging in travel and is a fierce advocate against domestic violence.
