According to the recent statistics, today there are 44 million people in the US owe nearly $1.5 trillion in student debt. The numerals become larger every day! With it, a student should choose between eating three times a day, paying rent on time, and buying the needed books. As a result, now students across the nation fight for #FreeCollege4All.

She also added:
