What’s your Student Debt Story?
Student Debt Story:
I feel I was lied to by teachers, society, elders, tv, that a college education would guarantee employment. A teacher even said that any degree is better than no degree. I earned both my AAS and BA in Liberal Arts and believe they are mostly a waste of money and time. I paid all my first degree loans back. also managed to pay half of my second degree but struggled to do so. I am unemployed and have been for several years. I am unable to find steady work but also suffer from childhood PTSD that have become more severe after I have been out of work for a couple of years. However, no one cares. I wrote President Obama and begged for college loan forgiveness. But he wrote that he paid for his college and I need to pay mine. The government, DSHS and SSI doesn't hear the people struggling to survive. They don't care what circumstances they suffer. I only pray and hope that the next president will forgive the college debt from students of whom are begging for forgiveness as there is no forgiveness in the current office.
