The Pandemic Helped Me Save More, Not Less
My name is Jemimah Dumawal, and I’m the Graphic Designer & Creative Lead for Bridge Southeast Asia.
I’m at the age where I have to think of my future. I wanted to save up as much as I could, so I decided that in addition to my savings deduction through Access, I would set aside the same amount, or even double it, every pay day. And even though I really miss going shopping, I’ve forced myself to stop purchasing things online to save up more.
During this time, I realized that this pandemic disrupted everything and a lot of things became uncertain. Because of this, it’s really better to save up now so I’ll be ready in case something similar happens again in the future.
