I’m 25 years old and I’ve just com­pleted my de­gree. I’ve had nu­mer­ous emo­tional break­downs be­cause of pres­sure to fig­ure out my life.

See­ing your peers with cars and prop­er­ties of their own while you’re still ask­ing your par­ents for bread is un­pleas­ant.

It’s so dif­fi­cult to start a busi­ness be­cause of the lack of sup­port within our com­mu­ni­ties. Get­ting em­ployed is tough enough, but giv­ing up isn’t an op­tion.

The only time we’ll see change is if we start sup­port­ing lo­cal en­trepreneurs –

en­cour­ag­ing fi­nan­cial, so­cial and ed­u­ca­tional growth – and shar­ing ideas and up­lift­ing one an­other. The strug­gle is real, but unity and love con­quer all. ANONY­MOUS, EMAIL
