elyanne Barros came to the United States as a child from Brazil, and spent much of her life in Miami as an undocumented immigrant. She was eventually able to go to law school, but when she graduated in 2008, she had $150,000 in student debt and no wealth to her name. After discovering the FIRE movement (Financial Independence / Retire Early), she began pursuing her own debt-free journey, paying off $110,000 in student loans in 10 months. Today, Delaynne carries no debt and has built a net worth of over $300,000. She plans to achieve FIRE by 2028. Through her digital course, Slay The Stock Market, she provides her clients with investing coaching so that they can achieve their own financial goals to fund their dream life. You can follow her on Instagram and Twitter or join her Facebook Group.
Editors Note: Since this episode was recorded, Delyanne paid off her student loans 5 months ahead of her originally scheduled debt free date of December 25, 2020, and has accelerated her FIRE journey even faster! You can read her story in NextAdvisor and Business Insider.
