It's finally here, BA Fam! A show entirely dedicated to YOUR questions about student loan debt. 

We are joined by Angela Howze, a financial aid expert and owner of the Financial Literacy Institute, a nonprofit company that aims to help students and their families plan and pay for college without drowning in debt.

Here are some of the topics we cover on today's show:

  • How do I catch up on loans when I’m 3-6 months behind on payments? (i.e. Student Loan Rehabilitation)
  • Can I defer my loan more than once?
  • The key to qualifying for Public Service Loan Forgiveness — enrolling in an income-driven repayment plan.
  • The future of Public Service Loan Forgiveness
  • Qualifying jobs for PSLF
  • Fixed rate vs. variable rate student loans
  • How to pay for grad school
  • What happens when your college says you owe a debt for unpaid tuition?
  • How Tiffany REALLY got her federal student loan forgiven
  • How to save an additional 15% off your student loan debt if you can make a lump sum payment

If there's one thing we've taken away from the past weekend's sad events in Charlottesville, it's the need to continue to call it like we see it — whether that "it" is racism, bigotry, sexism, terrorism, or any targeted attack on a certain group of people. 

We've all got eyes, hearts, and lives of our own. And they can't tell us what we are seeing, feeling and experiencing isn't real. 

On today's show, we also discuss the importance of being your own self advocate in your life and especially in your career — even if it feels like the most uncomfortable thing in the world. 

Thank you for your continued support! Please leave us a review on iTunes to let us know how you feel about the show.

xx Yours in Brown Ambition,

Another packed show, BA Fam!

Check out this report by the Economic Policy Institute on the gender/racial pay gap that is effecting women of color in the U.S. — and some myths about why Black women are still so far behind in the fight for equal pay.
