Today Personal Finance by Women is happy to announce a Charis Hill feature on Business Insider!

Hill is a disabled, car-free, queer writer living in Sacramento. In their first Business Insider piece, they document how they bought a home on their SSDI income, including the strokes of luck it took to get them to a place of housing stability within a system that is rigged against them (and so many others.)

Check out Hill’s story here, being sure to share across your social networks in order to encourage the publication of more diverse stories in mainstream financial media!

You can tag Business Insider, and include the hashtag #personalfinancebywomen so we can be sure to amplify your posts!

Personal Finance by Women wants to thank Business Insider editors for working with us to locate and feature talented writers with diverse experiences with money. We also want to thank Hill for their willingness to share their important story and expose more people to the realities of living on SSDI on Medicaid/care. PF by Women also thanks Alice Wong and Heather Watkins, both talented writers themselves, and both of whom provide us with generous consultations and recommendations as we strive to work with the disabled community to further amplify their writers and story-tellers in the personal finance space.
