‘We Are the 99 Percent’ Photo of the Day

What is this young person’s story?

I am a senior at MPHS in Chicago. My father is unemployed and my mother works hectic hours to pay the rent and bills. Link is our only way to obtain grocery items (Link is how residents of Illinois get food stamps). I would like to study pre-med/biology in college starting Fall 2012. I cannot afford to go and even with loans I would never be able to pay back I can’t afford to go. I am the 99%.
