Yahoo asked Americans who have taken out student loans to ask questions in videos about their situation or about the industry in general. Here's one.
My name is Rhiannon Pooler. I'm 27 years old from Rochester, Minn. I graduated from Arizona State University with a bachelor's in sociology. I owe more than $160,000. My monthly payments are $2,310 and rising. I only make on average $1,500 a month. I understood after college I would have to pay student loans back. I thought however I could still afford the basic necessities of living (food, a roof over my head), with some indulgences here and there. I'm miserable and feel permanently trapped.
