Why Upstart

I will use part of my Upstart funds to pay my student loans. This will provide me with a certain level of flexibility, allowing me to devote any additional funds and part of my income to the following:

-scaling up some of my low-key creative endeavors (such as the African accessory line),
-developing my professional website and other infrastructure as various projects develop,
-(assuming continued success) expansion of FacFinder and other innovative projects in West Africa, and
-research and writing
