My story is not unique. I am the product of a broken economy and a struggling middle class whose parents make too much for them to receive a free education, yet not enough to fund the outrageous cost of higher education. We are stuck in limbo with no way out. How will we buy property when we can’t afford to pay our bills? How will we pay for our children’s education if we can’t afford to pay for our own? It’s not easy to win a race when you’ve started a quarter of a million paces behind.
