Dear friends,

I am lucky enough to have a good job and minimal college debt thanks to scholarships, work study and grants. I just want to say that I understand. I grew up poor and moved upwards of 20 times because of several evictions. At times, I was homeless and other times I lived with friends. During my junior year of high school, I lived in a hotel and on the one year anniversary of the beginning of my stay there, I was accepted into my state’s flagship university. I consider myself lucky since many of my friends struggle. I would like to tell you all that your courage, resolve, and engagement will lift you from the doldums and activism akin to this has helped people like me. I thank you for your passion. 

In Solidarity with my brothers and sisters,

99 Percenter
