Fighting for education.
This last weekend I spent in Washington DC with over 300 student leaders from colleges and universities from all over the nation. We attended the United States Student Association Legislative Conference to learn how to be better contributors to our nation. We as student are outraged that student debt has reached over ONE TRILLION dollars (more than credit card debt in this country) and feel education has fallen behind on our nations priorities. So, Monday the students of USSA representing over 400 college/universities and 4 million students across the nation stood in solidarity outside the offices of Sallie Mae- the nations largest profiteer off of student debt. We then proceeded to meet with the representatives and senators and their staff from our respective states to lobby and have discussions around making education a priority.
“We’re demanding that students get bailed out, just like the banks and corporations did,” says USSA. “If they are too big to fail, so is an entire generation of college graduates.” -More here

My friendships mean the world to me. They have really held me up these last few weeks when I felt I had no energy to stand up. So thank you for being the reason I can get up in the morning when sometimes you feel like the world just weighs you down.
