As a former middle school math teacher, education has always been important to Dee-1. However, going to college can sometimes be difficult for those who can’t afford to pay up front. With the help of student loans from Sallie Mae, millions of students in the United States have been able to complete a higher education program. Sallie Mae has teamed up with Dee-1 to not only spread the message about student loans but help more students get a head start at avoiding debt post graduation.
“I’m so thankful for college, because it is my college education that equips me with the tools I need to win in life.” -Dee-1, hip hop artist, educator, and motivational speaker.
