The Urry Sisters: Rebecca, Reanna and Rachael.
The Urry Sisters:
Rebecca, Reanna, and Rachael

In our last episode we met the older Urry sisters, Rebecca and Rachael who both attended private college, lived away from home, changed their majors once and owe more than $60,000 in student debt. But their younger sister, Reanna doesn’t want to carry that burden.

Today on our Zero College Debt Dream series, we highlight Reanna’s story and how she is finding ways to complete a degree, debt free by taking CCP, College Credit Plus classes through Lorain County Community College. It’s a program that offers free college tuition, books and fees to high school students in the state of Ohio.

EP#23: The Zero College Debt Dream: A Tale of Two Sisters

Today we continue our series on the Zero College Debt Dream. In our previous podcast we spoke with Neurologist Dr. Amanda Opaskar who talked about the 17 year old brain and how it is wired to make impetuous, spontaneous decisions without thinking about the long term consequence. Today we meet Reanna Urry and her family. Reanna is 18 years old and is about to make the most consequential financial decision of  her life. She is planning to go to college but, where will she go and how will she pay for it? How much debt is she will to take on? Reanna’s decision will have a lot to do with what happened to her two sisters, Rebecca and Rachael.
