What’s your Student Debt Story?
Student Debt Story:
I am a 34 year old single mom who graduated in 2008 and graduated to the "real world" during a double recession. I was unable to find a job even though I left with cumlaude honors and 2 degrees. I decided to go back to school and get my Master's Degree and continue to bartend in the interim. During this time I got pregnant and decided to work in sales, I feel that has been kind to me and has given me the ability to support my daughter on my own. However, I am unable to pay the ever-mounting minimum payment and should not have to choose between feeding my daughter and paying an overwhelming amount of student loan debt off. This is a crisis that affects Millions. I can only pray that something is done about it. In the meantime my credit is destroyed and I continue to rent an apartment rather than build a future and stability for my child.
