As an English major coming from similar background, my parents paid for my education and I had zero student debt, I had gone through similar experience. The only difference is that I've always loved and wanted to teach. I've taught and kept in touch with my students over the years and I always feel like it's my calling.

I love your perseverance, Edis! By the way, I send out newsletter every Monday with writing resources and tools. It includes websites where you can get writing gigs as a freelancer and stuff like that. Let me know if you're interested in more info. I think you'll be great with your copywriting. Are you already in Upwork by any chance?
