Anne - Business Administration

With my summaries on Stuvia I help other students while earning a nice amount of money myself. Most of the time I save this money to buy something big. However, I also did some shopping after the first payouts I received.

Mikael - Medicine

The first year that I sold flashcards turned out to be an unexpected success. In only two years, I turned over 14.000 dollar on Stuvia.

IrisAshmira - Law

Even though I finished law school, I still sell my summaries and notes on Stuvia. I used the earnings to pay the half of a flight ticket once. And when I used to be short in cash, I used the money to go shopping or pay rent.
