Getting a distinction is no easy feat. 
Working hard to achieve seven is another level of difficulty that we can only admire. 

TeamEasy and all of us at Purple Group are proud of the St. Stithians matriculant, and future University of Pennsylvania scholar. With his future in business set to begin through the Ivy League university's Wharton Business School, we’re giving props to Easy youser Thulo Serobe for excelling through one of the hardest challenges in his young life. To all of our other young yousers who smashed this epic challenge in 2017, we're proud of you.
An Easy youser and future world-beater entrepreneur, he has set himself up for success by investing in himself and sticking to a long-term strategy no matter what obstacles he faced.

Check out just what they had to say.

Saving and investing is usually seen as a very individual activity: where singular undertakings and risks can yield very singular reward. Which is great when you’re an island, but a lot of us belong to communities and little clubs that we would love to see flourish. As social creatures and members of the EasyCommunity that loves sharing with one another our investment journeys and strategies, it's only natural to want to know more about how we can invest as communal groups.
