Melanie Lockert had a college degree and a stable job in Southern California, surrounded by family and friends. But when she was presented with the opportunity to ditch it all for her dream of a Master’s Degree at one of the best programs in the nation, she left it all behind.

In the end she’s left with a Master’s Degree from NYU and $81,000 in student loan debt for a degree is in Performance Studies.

Without an easy way to find meaningful work and pay her student loans, Melanie could have given up. Instead, she took it as a challenge.

Today – just 5 years after graduating from NYU – her student loans are paid in full.

You’ve got to hear about her emotional roller coaster – and how she beat her debt.
