$37,000 and counting… that’s what i’m facing in debt after I finish my UNDERGRAD. A mixture of government loans and private loan, yeah, it feels great.
When I was 18, I knew everything, and I had to go out of state for college; even though my dad told me I could graduate in my home state virtually debt free.
Student debt almost seems inevitable now-a-days, which is sad being that in order to make a stable life for yourself, you need a bachelor’s degree. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about my student debt, a big flashing $37,000 running through my head.
As if Nicki Minaj twerking didn’t give me enough life, now, she has helped a select number of students pay off their college debt and in the future, is planning to create a charity foundation to further help students pay off their student loans.
On twitter last week, Minaj said if you can show her straight A’s that she would be able to verify with the school, she will pay off your student loans.
The foundation that Minaj is building will focus on girls in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
This all really stands out to me because it is so relevant to me and those my age. It’s nice to see these people who are worth multi-million dollars, put their money to good use. Where they could just piss away thousands of dollars on new cars, they use the money to make a genuine difference in someone else’s life.
