So life gives you lemons, but not all the ingredients to make lemonade, what do you do then?
My life as it is consists of never ending unhappiness and struggle. I never had a job in my life because no employer would give me the chance to be interviewed even though I had so much volunteer experience. Just last year I applied to over 30 jobs, and not one responded back to me. My application was not even considered.
I am 20 years old yet I do not know how to drive because I have no access to have a car. Also I have no one to teach me. I can’t transport myself from one place to another. I have tried pushing people to teach me, but they refuse. People say hire an instructor, but with what money? I can barely afford to buy food for myself.
America expects young adults to go to college in order to become successful and find a place in this world, but make it so god damn expensive and impossible for low income students like me. I worked so hard to be where I am now and this year, costs at my school went up and now I can no longer afford to pay for school. Even when I pulled out all my loans, it still does not cover the costs. Financial aid is supposed to help and what can they expect from a young woman who does not have a job? Who now has nothing?
I see how this country invests in building new sports stadiums, shopping malls, big businesses- the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. Us college students are not a priority. We are not important yet we are expected to succeed even when we are denied the things that we need in order to succeed.
I have worked so hard all these years and yet I am denied all these things.
Now I have all these lemons and have no idea what to do with them now…..
