The education system in the United States is one of the best in the world. However, millions of people in the United States do not have access to quality education. Many women still believe that earning an education is not essential. To counter this idea, Nina Vaca recently spoke at an event where she encouraged girls to obtain an education in developing industries.
Vaca is a successful entrepreneur who is passionate about helping women around the world. She firmly believes that women should start more companies. The vast majority of entrepreneurs in the United States are men. Vaca is working to change that statistic by teaching girls the power of running a company.
Vaca moved to the United States when she was a child. She was born in Ecuador, but her parents decided to move to pursue financial opportunities in the United States. Vaca worked hard in school and graduated from Texas State University.
Instead of working a typical career path, Vaca decided to start a company. Many people thought she was crazy for attempting to start a business. However, she built Pinnacle Group into one of the most successful IT staffing companies in the United States.
One of the most significant issues with the current education system is the cost of tuition. Many students graduate from college with a lot of student loan debt. Instead of starting a business, many graduates feel like taking a secure job is the most prudent approach. Vaca tells students to avoid debt as much as possible.
Vaca is also working with government leaders to reduce the cost of education. She believes that women and minorities should be given more educational opportunities.
