My name is Markia
...but you might know me as
The Money Plug
Since launching my TikTok account in January 2021, I've become a beacon of financial knowledge and empowerment in today's fast-paced economic world. With over 6 million views across my social media platforms and counting, I've dedicated myself to democratizing access to wealth-building tools and resources through entertainingly relatable content. Thus elevating people of all ages to achieve financial wellness and security.
My insights and expertise have earned me recognition on prestigious platforms like The New York Times, CBS News, and Business Insider. This year, I was awarded the Female Finfluencer award by Savvy Ladies, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the financial empowerment of women. I also won Best New Personal Finance Content (Video)
My commitment extends beyond digital spaces. I've been a guest speaker at important industry events, often focusing on the pivotal role of financial institutions in guiding the youth toward financial stability. At the NCUA’s annual DEI Summit in 2022, I spoke about leveraging social media to educate unbanked and underserved communities and how banks and credit unions can improve their services.
Your financial counselor's favorite financial counselor.
Empowerment. Inclusivity. Transformation.
The Money Plug's mission focuses on uplifting underserved communities, offering them vital tools and education to achieve their definition of financial success. In championing financial inclusivity, I am not just bridging gaps but reshaping financial narratives for the better.
