Faneisha “Fo” Alexander, thought that she’d be in debt for the rest of her life. At twenty-five, she found herself with over $78,000 in student loan debt, living paycheck to paycheck.
Not understanding how she could have done all of the “right” things—getting two degrees and landing a great job—she finally decided to take control of her financial future.

By twenty-eight, she was debt-free—having paid her for her dream wedding cash—and by twenty-nine, she and her husband purchased their first home. Faneisha’s story is far from rare. Women are not only attaining higher degrees and climbing the career ladder, but they’re getting into massive amounts of debt while doing so.
