You’re taking 15+ hours of classes, working 30+ hours a week, you’re broke, you’re tired, you’re constantly running from one thing to the next, your friends think you’re a flake, and you just remembered you have a test you still need to cram for. Life sucks sometimes, and you feel like no one else understands the feeling of being split between so many different roles.
Let me assure you my friend, you are not alone!
Partnering up with my classmates, I will be working on compiling together a wake-up-call of a documentary. When it is complete we will send it to PBS with our fingers crossed that it will ruffle a few feathers at minimum.
Higher education is important and necessary for the growth of our country, but it is also becoming more and more difficult to obtain due to costs. With this documentary, our hope is to show the fight it takes to try to achieve something great, to create a brighter future-not only for ourselves but for those around us. Protests and violence won’t work. If we want to put up a fight for a better education system we first have to reveal the honest struggle.
This is where you come in!
I need stats!
If you have a moment to spare please message me and I will send you a quick survey of questions. Participation in this is key! I need to be able to quantify the amount of working students that exist, the little sleep they get, the hours they work and the debt they’ve obtained. Please. please. please. for your sake, for your children’s sake and for your children’s children, help a sister out!
