What will you do with the money saved during a year-long vacation from your student loan payments?

I will pay off all my medical and credit card debt! Then begin substantially saving more money.

How do you think this opportunity could change your life? Or why is it important to you?

This opportunity will allow me to focus on my long-term plans and will eliminate all the stress I had regarding money for at least a year.

JESSICA C.

PhD Candidate

“Since I began my higher education, sleep has not always been my top priority. Whether it was going to class until 9:30pm and waking up at 7:00am to go to work, or staying up to finish an assignment on time, sleep has taken a back seat. However, the number one reason I stay up late is because I worry. Mainly, I worry about money. At 26, I’ve had nine years of higher education, all of which I have taken out loans for. Unfortunately, I have two more years until graduation, which means two more years of loans. I have worked during all of my degrees, most of which has been full time employment… So, you ask what I will do with a year of financial freedom? I’ll get more sleep.”

SOCORRO G. 

Office Manager
MBA candidate

What will you do with the money saved during a year-long vacation from your student loan payments?

I would love to plan a trip to Europe since I’ve never been.

How do you think this opportunity could change your life? Or why is it important to you?

It will help eliminate the burden of student loans as well as reconfirm that I made the right decision going to grad school even though it is a big financial investment.

CALVIN C.

Director of Music and Dance
Studied Music Education

What will you do with the money saved during a year-long vacation from your student loan payments?

I plan on saving the money for a home for my family.

How do you think this opportunity could change your life? Or why is it important to you?

Being able to get ahead on my student loans will enable me to create a wonderful future for my family and focus on my students.

DANAE G.

“With my newfound financial freedom, I could save towards a down payment for a home. A home that my family can always come to as the home base.  A home I would value and relish with strong pride of ownership.  A home that would be spacious enough to host my family during the holidays to honor our traditions while creating new ones. A home that would allow me to build equity and advance my financial knowledge and goals. A home that would hopefully be a lasting treasure to my family and me.”

IRODA A.

Digital Marketing Project Manager
Studied Business Administration: Arts Management

What will you do with the money saved during a year-long vacation from your student loan payments?

I will use that money to buy a piano keyboard, pay for my music lessons, and buy studio time to record my original songs.

How do you think this opportunity could change your life? Or why is it important to you?

This opportunity will allow me to pay off my student debt more quickly, as I will continue making the required monthly payments in addition to Scholly’s but I will no longer allocate the rest of my income to paying off my loans. I will now spend that money on things that really matter to my artistic growth including music equipment, music lessons, and studio time to record my music.

Therapeutic Social Worker
Studied Social Work

“It was not an easy decision to take out thousands upon thousands of dollars to pursue a Master’s degree. However, I knew it was needed and made the choice to go after it. My graduate school education and training has brought me to where I am now – a social worker in therapeutic foster care. This work is incredibly meaningful and it does pose its own set of challenges and stressors. One unchanging constant is that I am humbled by the resilience, love and care demonstrated by the children and families I serve.”

DONALD G.

People Leader & Leadership Coach, Non-Profit Manager
Studied Technological Entrepreneurship & Management

What will you do with the money saved during a year-long vacation from your student loan payments?

I plan on starting a savings account for my children to help them get started with college when they graduate.

How do you think this opportunity could change your life? Or why is it important to you?

Sometimes all you need is just a little boost to help you get to where you want to be in life. Helping my children to start their own path and make their own way having that same opportunity is life changing in itself.
