I have $15,000 of student loans I am aiming to have paid off by Dec. 2024. A brief summary of my journey.
Out of high school, I had nothing resembling a backbone and went to college because, that’s what I was supposed to do. Though I met many good people and learned a lot, in the end nothing financially beneficial came from my first college experience.
Years later, I moved to a different state with my sister. The distance from home gave me knew perspective on myself. And the drive to find a path forward into a fulfilling life came into me. As such, I found my way to Massage school.
The school I found in my area ended up being one of the best Massage school in the country. I learned my chosen craft and, now graduated, I will begin my career in January of 2024. Focusing on pain relief massage.
As my career gets started, I want to set myself up for the best future possible for me and those I care for. The biggest obstacle; my debts.
Now, I have credit card debt. But, I am confident I can pay this all off by mid summer. Possibly sooner if nothing major comes up (which it might because life).
It is my student loans I have less confidence about. As the total amount of all my debt combined is around $25,000. So, while I will definitely pay the student loans down some, I cannot predict how much. At least half. But that is not the goal.
Which brings us to this post. I am asking for a leg up, from anyone who may, to help me reach my debt free goal by my target date. So I can move on from the past and focus on the present and future.
For those of you who do, I thank you with my full heart (No worries I can always make it bigger if I need to )
And for those of you who don’t, I hope you do find someone to give a helping hand on their journey.
Best fortunes and wishes, Shannon Grande
