Invest in Yourself: The Debt-Free Path to Higher Education

Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.

-Malcolm X

‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ This is a question that most of us have heard regularly as a child. Maybe it’s a doctor, a teacher, or even a professional athlete — the possibilities are endless! And while it’s both exciting and magical to dream about the different paths that our lives could one day take, it is also vital that the conversation doesn’t end there. 

At Lite Tuition, we believe that creating a plan for how an educational goal will be achieved is just as important as what that goal is. Too often, Americans rely on student loans to pay for education costs, which ultimately ends up stunting their future financial success. In his book, “The Debt Trap: How Student Loans Became a National Catastrophe,” Josh Mitchell eloquently explains how many borrowers are actually worse off for having gone to college, as student loan debt has caused higher education to stop being a ladder to career and financial success, and has instead become a slide downward. 

Let’s change this narrative! 

Our initiative, #InvestInYourself, empowers hardworking students to showcase and share their unique story with supporters all around the world.
