Do you know what question among many others pops in my mind whenever I play the board game called “The Game of Life”? Well it’s actually a very confusing thought for foreigners I guess.. Besides asking “Why am I stick figure here?”, I also ask myself this, “Wow, you can actually purchase student loans in college? When I was in grade school, college seemed like a mile away. Why should I bother thinking about college or money, I’m still young! But I think I should have started thinking about it earlier so then my path wouldn’t be so dark and scary.
Well back to loans. Because my country’s government is not exactly rich and wealthy, they cannot afford to give public school students the much-needed college loans that the US seem to give to their students. They have a lot of sites that can help them choose even their online college degrees. If ever they do have this, it isn’t sufficient and not well organized because not a lot of parents think of availing one for their children.
I hope that the government sees the importance of these private student loans. It helps prepare a student to realize their responsibilities and their duties as citizens to pay back their government that has helped them. But this is still a near-yet-far dream for my country. I hope that more funds would be allotted to the education fund. So fellow citizens, let’s vote wisely in next year’s elections!
