21 years old. College grad, in grad school.
Piled in debt, topping well over $40,000 with no way out.
With no job and healthy insurance my American dream is not insight.
I don’t know if I will ever have my dream job to be an educator with all the budget cuts.
So scared I’ll end up poor I don’t know if I’ll be that mother I would like to be someday.
I live at home with my Mom who support me. She works but only makes enough for rent and food, and gas money for the week for a car we share.
Luckily we rent from a private owner, because we have been short on rent for the past year.
I haven’t had a job in going on three years. My debt allows me to go to school, but, what happens after I graduate and all the jobs are still everywhere else by America.
21 years old and I am the 99%. We are the 99%.
