“I am passionate about getting financial education information out to others--there’s just not enough of it available,” said Elizabeth “Lizzie” Wright during the interview. Wright makes her own clothing and brings her sewing machine to the BizKid$ set to use during down time. Her specialty is altering prom dresses. Wright was joined by executive producer Jamie Hammond at the interview. Hammond said the program helps showcase youth who have put their foot in the door of the business world. “A college education is just not enough these days,” she said. BizKid$ airs on 311 public broadcasting stations nationwide. It is underwritten by America's Credit Unions. The show is produced in association with Junior Achievement Worldwide and WXXI Public Broadcasting. Funding is led by the National Credit Union Foundation and the Washington Credit Union Foundation.
