Landing a professional job in the future almost always requires a degree. Doctors don’t operate on patients nor do lawyers represent someone in court without years of university or college education. As a child, it seems natural to think about going to medical school or law school to pursue what you want. But in reality, the cost of education is high, and it is continuously increasing.
According to statistics, the U.S. has accumulated over $1.56 trillion credited to student loan debt. The amount placed second in the consumer debt list, following mortgage, and outranks credit card and auto loans. More than 45 million individuals in the U.S. are currently indebted to enrolling in educational institutions. In the face of overwhelming student debt, comes people like Demetrius Curry.
College Cash is a company that monetizes its user’s photographs that are submitted for brand campaigns, with those funds going directly to the users student loan debt. Founded by Curry and L. Michael Simpson, College Cash bridges its users with brands or organizations that seek photos matching their campaigns. For a tech-savvy generation with smartphones sporting high spec cameras, College Cash serves as the modern way of addressing student loan debts.
When a company finds a good photograph and purchases it, College Cash forwards the payment of the companies to the respective student loan servicer of the user. Users can post any amount of content they want – the more photographs, the more chance of getting paid. College Cash assists its users in tracking the money they pay to student loan servicers and gives them a choice where and when to disburse the funds. With College Cash, employers can also help their employees’ student loans through a tax-deductible employee benefit via the Tuition Assistance Program.
The motivation to help struggling students and graduates comes from a challenging background. Curry was a homeless, high school dropout from Chicago and committed delinquencies usually associated with his age and environment, and it seemed that the future wasn’t going to be too promising for him. Often, people think that when one drops out of school, life becomes unproductive and meaningless. But history has proven this notion wrong with stories of billionaires like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. Succeeding, albeit stemming from the same difficult background, Curry adds to the list. However, our stories differ, and not everyone is a Bill Gates or Steve Jobs. Still, the collective journey towards success opens ajar when people proceed with a college education. And College Cash is ready to help any student grappled by debt.
The African-American-founded company opens its doors to college students and former students. Since student debt follows an individual even after graduating from tertiary education, these unsettled student loans can add considerable risk to the future of an individual. For instance, many employers check the credits of their employees, and some companies hold it against them when looking at hiring. Similarly, the prospect of graduate studies will become nearly impossible simply because one has to pay off another set of education fees in order to achieve the next level of education.
College Cash envisions a life of ease and comfort for its users – they want to give an impact and steer people towards better lives without concerns from debt. The company integrates the effectiveness of creative marketing, the expansive reach of social media, and natural talent for taking photographs with the end result being a unique way to reduce student loan debt. The system converts paying student loans from a pressuring and tiring process to a creative and enjoyable one.
