I paid $64,305 for a $23,000 student loan.

In the past ten years, I paid nearly triple for loans I took out in undergrad.

  • My loans were not covered by the CARES act, it just opened an opportunity to pay them off. If it were not for the CARES act I would have paid 86,765.75.
  • I would have been rejected for PSLF even though I have worked for eligible nonprofits for the past decade.
  • In my 32 years on this earth I have lost sleep due to being hungry and unsafe, but I cannot understand how Navient employees sleep at night.

My loan payments by month, ranging from $350 up to $19,000. Numbers not adjusted for inflation, as they are already obscene.
