My entire life, I have wanted nothing more than to go to college & make something of myself. The only form of money I get is the $150 a week pay I get from watching my 2 year old nephew. My parents cannot help me go to school because my mother & stepdad have a $1300 mortgage & have all they can do to pay. My dad & stepmother cannot help because she has type 1 diabetes & needed a kidney transplant & is constantly in & out of the hospital.
Now that I have read some of the stories, I am afraid to go to school. But how else am I suppose to make something of myself & be able to build a life for myself? I don’t want to be afraid to make something of myself. I SHOULDN’T be afraid.
My entire family & I are the 99%.
