Although this was my last resort it has come time where I need to seek the kindness of perfect strangers. I am in a crippling amount of student debt.
After my undergraduate career, I did a volunteer mission in Africa and Nepal that inspired me to do more. I supported my family as best I could for those years while working and then decided to go back to graduate school. I moved out of my home state for the first time and supported myself while attending graduate school. I received my masters last year and have been working three jobs. I spend my free time volunteering at homeless and animal shelters. I work in non profit so the compensation isn’t ideal. I hope to go back overseas and use my education and passion to help build efficient organizations to set up schooling in underprivileged areas.
I paid almost $79k and I still have $126k left!!! My ridiculous interest rate has made it nearly impossible to pay this off.
I am doing my absolute best with the knowledge I’ve gained around my debt. I was laid off a few months ago due to the pandemic. It’s become all consuming .. every waking minute of my day. I fear for my health but mostly not being able to support my family. It’s absolutely terrifying not seeing an end to this.
I am looking for all the help you can provide me. I will forever be indebted to you. I am grateful that you even stayed to read this message.
