President Obama has a new plan that I think should have been passed a long time ago
I have heard about this before but it didn’t sound like a real thing, and now it does.
This law would mean that “anyone with a severe disability is eligible to have the government discharge their federal student loans. The law will identify those who are elegible for this and guide them through the steps to dismiss their loans.” Through this, they will no longer have to explain to anyone why they cannot pay for their loans.
I think this is a law that should have been passed a long time ago. If you have a severe disability, can’t work, or all your money goes to medical expenses, then you can’t pay loans, it’s as simple as that.
To my knowledge this law does not apply to Puerto Rico, only the 50 states.
Obama to forgive the student debt of permanently disabled people

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.

Sorry, Kiki this is for the 50 states.

I know it’s not for me, but it’s great it’s helping somebody. It would be better if Puerto Rico was included, but we don’t count for any benefits, not even disabled people.
