Simran Kaur and Sonya Gupthan of Girls That Invest are 2 millennial investors who are extremely passionate about all things investing and personal finance. With only 20-30% of women investing in stocks and bridging the wealth gap, Simran & Sonya have made it their personal mission to make sure young women are represented in the financial media space (please no more news articles on how to save $10 on groceries!)
