“Things I Wish I Knew in School” teaches you what high school didn’t (includes podcast)

“Things I wish I knew in school” is a weekly podcast hosted by Daniela Del Valle and Adriana Matos designed to educate young adults in an entertaining way about subjects they normally wouldn’t study in school. It explores themes related to peer pressure, credit cards, how to change a tire, do laundry and everything in between that doesn’t involve y=mx+b.

In the first episode, hosts Daniela and Adriana describe things they wish they cared less about and how they find confidence in themselves as they grow up.

Credit Cards! No one told us how they worked when we were younger. Daniela and Adriana share some mistakes they made once they got credit cards, so you don’t make them as well.

In part two of “I wish I hadn’t maxed out,” Adriana talks with financial coaches Nydia Alvarez and Ivet Rios about credit scores and how young adults can establish healthy credit habits.

Have you ever been stuck in the middle of the night with a flat tire? This happened to Daniela, but her friend was there to help. To prevent this from happening to you, Daniela walks you through the process of how to change a tire all on your own.

Laundry. It is so simple but actually not everyone is sure how to do it. Sit back and join Daniela and Adriana as they learn how to do laundry together.

We’re all adults here, right? Nobody tells you how hard it is to become an adult when you’re growing up. In this episode, Daniela and Adriana get candid about the struggles young adults face.
