Please tell us a little about your professional background.
I’m currently a full-time junior at the University of Houston studying Biochemistry with a minor in Marketing. I was first introduced to content creation and social media marketing at a philanthropic organization, One Small Step, at the University of Houston where I was Public Relations Officer. I then became a Student Sales Professional at The Stephen Stagner Sales Excellence Institute to learn how to build my personal brand, utilize CRM systems and selling myself and products. Currently, I work at my university as a part-time IT Customer Service Support for students and faculty and now expanding my social media marketing experience with Wallet Max.
How did you get involved with Wallet Max?
I got involved with Wallet Max by word of mouth from another intern. Aicha and I were group mates for a marketing class at school and she came up to me and told me about Wallet Max. At first, I was hesitant to join since I already work part-time at school, but I wanted to build my marketing experience and it was a plus that I’ll be working with someone I know. She connected me to Bhuva, who gave me a call, and then I was part of the team!
Why do you believe in Wallet Max?
I believe in Wallet Max because being financially responsible is something that everyone should be aware of and the amount of work Bhuva and our team has done to make that possible is something that I’m proud to be a part of as an intern.
What is one piece of advice you would like to give for the Wallet Max founding team members and to Bhuva (CEO) herself?
One piece of advice I’d like to give for the Wallet Max founding team and Bhuva is to communicate Wallet Max’s message to be accessible to all, no matter how young or old and integrate the accessibility into the app and social media sites.
What incentive do you think would persuade new users to join Wallet Max?
I think the "refer-a-friend" program with a small reward (such as $5 in-app purchase or maybe a chance for a premium subscription to the app) would persuade new users to join Wallet Max in a niche fin-tech community and later expand on other communities.
Who do you think would most benefit from using the Wallet Max app? Why?"
I think anyone with multiple credit cards can benefit from using the Wallet Max app as well as looking to add a 2nd card to their collection. Personally, it is tedious to look through multiple credit card apps and it discourages me to check which card provides the better cash back or rewards for my daily needs.
