Letter of the week—August 6th, 2012

First, I would like to thank the President for everything he has done to help Americans afford to go to college. Although I won't be old enough to vote in the election, I still strongly believe that President Obama is the voice of change for America.

When I was growing up, college always seemed so far away, like a dream that would never come true. Now, I am a rising senior in high school and I know that I will be able to go to college. President Obama made college reachable for families who cannot afford the full price of education. Thanks to the Obama administration, my childhood dream of being a doctor is no longer a dream—it has the ability to happen. Because of the President, I feel like I can do anything with my career as long as I work hard.

He made it possible—he helped me achieve my dreams.

Thank you, President Obama. You have truly inspired me.

—Coleman, Colorado
