how to pay for college without student loans

Hey guys! I wanted to come on and make this video because I have gotten a few questions about it and felt like it was an important topic to talk about.  Not everyone has a back up savings, trust fund or college fund for going to school…I certainly didn’t! But a good education is one of the surest ways to position yourself for success, and everyone deserves a shot.  So I decided to put together this guide—”HOW TO PAY FOR COLLEGE”—to shed light on some of the ways that you can reduce the financial burden of a higher education, and graduate with little to no student loans!  A lot of the tips in the videos are things I actually did, and the rest are things that I wish I had done had I known better.  I hope this guide helps, and please let me know if you would like to see more videos with regard to education! Enjoy 🙂

IMPORTANT NOTE: As a minor, whenever doing anything on the internet that requires you to provide personal information—like applying to scholarships—you should always do so with the supervision and guidance of an adult! Be sure to speak with your parent, guardian, and/or your teachers and college counselors before and during the application process to ensure that you are making safe decisions.  Also, please read the scholarship scam red flags linked below (it is the first link)!
