Hi! I’m Jillian Berman, a reporter for MarketWatch, where I’ve covered student debt since 2015. In that time, I’ve followed 3 (!!) presidential administrations’ approach to student debt, how student loans and paying for college have impacted our economy, and the movement surrounding student debt forgiveness, an idea that began at Occupy Wall Street. More importantly, I regularly talk to borrowers about the way student loans are impacting their lives. I’d love to hear from you about your own relationship to student loans and college costs and look forward to answering any questions on the political debate surrounding student debt, tips for paying for college and or anything else!
EDIT: Alright, that's all the time I have, but this was great, thanks so much for doing it! For more info on student debt and college costs, follow me on Twitter @jillianberman. Also if you have student loan stories you'd like to share my Reddit inbox is open. Feel free to DM me at u/jillianberman
