I attend a university that costs more in tuition than my entire family makes in a year. Pell grants and student loans are the only reason I’m able to attend school. Supporting a family while living below the poverty line is not easy, and I’m thankful for everything my parents have done for me on a daily basis.
But I know they just don’t have the means to send me to school. President Obama, thank you for sending me to school. It brings tears to my eyes knowing that you and your administration continue to fight for my, and my generation’s, future.
Speaking of fighting—everybody take a second to tell Congress not to double federal student loan interest rates on July 1.
