-I’m in my 3rd year of university with 1 year of college to go. When I graduate, I will be over $30,000 in debt.
-My part time job doesn’t even provide me with enough money for my basic needs.
-I am $700 in credit card debt.
-I don’t even know if I will be able to find a job when I graduate with two bachelor degrees and a post-graduate college diploma.
It’s sad that to get any kind of decent job, we are required to have an education. It’s sad that attaining said education, causes an overwhelming amount of debt, before we even have a chance to get into the work place.
I hear students all around me speaking about their increasing amount of debt, the lack of food and personal supplies, and lack of finances to make ends meet. Why is this the “norm”? Something is wrong with this picture.
It’s a basic human right to become educated. It’s also a basic human right to be able to live…so why is that being taken away from us?
