Straight from those whose lives have been affected by the weight of student debt.
The entire situation of student debt keeps me up at night. I owe over 70K in private and federal loans and no one will help me. I’m in the mental health field where I am so needed, but unable to make the money to pay off the debt that I have.Amanda
I am a 60 year old mom and I work as a janitor to help my son pay his student loans of which $27,000 are federal and $20,000 are private. It is hard because he has very low wages, and I have arthritis which makes my job even harder. Without my help, the loans would default.Darlene
