I never had the benefit of having someone explain the realities of student loan debt in relation to the real-world income I could realistically expect to earn by taking on the debt required to pursue my dream of becoming an attorney. Had I, I would have chosen another path to accomplish the root core desire that I had: to help people. I am now a low-paid attorney unable to pay my monthly student loan payments. My goal is to pay off my student loan debt in 6 months in order to provide me with the financial capability of speaking to young students to inform them of the pitfalls of higher education and the associated debt so that they can hear it from someone they can relate to and avoid the mistakes I have made. Please help me in reaching my goal and bringing a beacon of information to this country's youth about the student loan debt crisis from someone who's experienced it!
