Natalie Higgins is a Democratic representative in the Massachusetts House of Representatives, representing the 4th district, in the northern-central town of Leominster — she’s also someone with a lot of student loans. “As one of those millennials that has six figures of student loan debt, it absolutely impacts every decision that I make in my life,” Higgins told Student Loan Hero. Student loans have become a major part of the national conversation, with Democratic candidates such as Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders calling for debt-free college and forgiveness of federal loans.
