"Dr. Matheny to the delivery room!" That's how Jasmine, a very smart 10-year-old, imagines hearing her name called over a hospital PA system someday. She wants to be an obstetrician.
"I really like babies," says the Adamston Elementary fifth grader. She enjoys playing with her baby cousins, "but people say it hurts to have a baby. I could help them, and it wouldn't hurt as bad."
Jasmine is well aware of the years of schooling she'll need to become an obstetrician — and of the importance of a college education — thanks to the support and encouragement of her family.
"My mom talks about college every day," Jasmine says. Jasmine will have a head start on paying for college, thanks to her SMART529 college savings account. Saving a little bit each month can make a big difference.
You can do the same by starting a SMART529 plan with just $50 and saving for your child's future at college or a qualified technical school.
Bright futures begin with SMART savings.
