Worked ages 14-17 to “save for college”. Became independent at 17 and left home.
Accepted in pre-med program, but opted for less debt and different major(s) at another school.
Less debt?? Graduated with 75,000K in debt, despite holding two jobs the whole time.
Graduated. Dozens of interviews: *overqualified*?!?!?!?
Started a business this year, I work 70+ hours a week and still cannot afford health insurance. I give SALLIE MAE EVERYTHING I EARN.
If I didn’t have a food business, I wouldn’t have food to eat. If I didn’t live with a friend, I’d be homeless.
But as a small business owner, I look “lucky”…..
How will I ever have a house? A HOME. A family?! American dream? - Must be dreaming it.
I am the 99%
