Hello! One of my greatest accomplishments in life was when I graduated from Georgia State University in 2014. I was extremely proud of myself for this achievement, because I am a first generation college graduate in my family.
I grew up really poor in one of the roughest low-socioeconomic communities in Atlanta, so going to college was truly a difficult task. I struggled throughout undergrads to pay for school supplies, books, and food. To this very day, I cannot eat noodles and sandwiches, as a result of eating it so much in school; it was all I could afford most times. I cried many nights on an empty stomach, but I was blessed to overcome it all.
Fast forward to today – almost a decade later, my $69,430 worth of student loans continue to hang over my head. Each time I check my credit report, it’s like a nightmare. I’d love to go to beauty school, but I maxed out all of my federal student aid. It just sucks, because I’ve come so far; however, I am still struggling to this day to get by.
On a lighter note, I was able to join the Fresh Start Program with the Department of Education, where my student loans were subsidized with a different collection agency. I now have a payment plan of $700+ a month until my loans are paid off in full. My first payment is due in October.
I am looking forward to getting any help I can with paying off my student loans. I have no support from anyone, not even my husband. I’m in the middle of a divorce, and I have two toddlers to provide for (one of my children has autism). I’ve been going to therapy for almost a year to get help with my mental health. Coming from a broken, impoverished family has been really hard. I’m not looking for sympathy or handouts, as I am going to provide my babies with a better life than I had growing up by any means necessary.
I will soon begin my new life as an ex-wife/single mom, and it would truly be the biggest blessing ever if my student loans would disappear. Please can you help me? Any amount of contribution will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for your compassion and consideration!
