More Info


My name is Melissa and I am a 25 year old graduate and for the past year, I have been working and living in Thailand as an English teacher [roughly $625 per month]. Enough money for Thailand, but not enough to keep up with my student loan debt. As of right now, I have approximately $20,000 in subsidized and unsubsidized student loans in America. With the payment system I am on and can afford, I only can pay the minimal amount required. Most my payments go to interest, so my loans are going down very slowly.

After being in America for a brief amount of time, I want to go back to live and work in Thailand. While teaching this past year, I truly enjoyed the time with the students and I loved every minute of it. Because of my student loans, I am unable to return to Thailand.

I am hoping from you reading this much of my story, you would be willing to help me in returning to Thailand. I look forward to going back and teaching English once again, but with my student loans holding me back, I am currently unable to do so.

Thank you for reading,Teacher Melissa :)
