Sharing our stories is the most powerful tool we have.
When I was growing up my parents gave me this advice: with hard work and determination, I could be anything I wanted. My dream was to be the first in my family to graduate college and my mom, my dad even my grandpa helped me make that dream come true.
We did what we had to do. Now, we all owe over $90,000 in student loan debt.
Student loan debt hurts my entire family. It means my parents can’t save for retirement, and I can’t afford to move out. I know I’m not the only one out there – 44 million Americans are carrying the burden of $1.4 trillion dollars of debt.
