We are so thrilled to ask Emma all the questions about how she paid off debt while living in an expensive area; here's some of our favorites:
- What was your debt, how much did you pay off and how long did it take you?
- Where were you living while paying it off and what unique challenges did you face because of the cost of living?
- What strategies did you use to overcome these challenges?
- Is there anything you’d do differently or advice you have for people currently in this?
