Performance artist Carvens Lissaint robs to get his financial aid…well, he does so verbally anyway. His TedYouth video below is inspiring in just how desperate students are for financial aid and how important financial aid is for students.
One of the most stirring lines in this entire video is when he said, “My ancestors did sit-in just so I can sit in a classroom.” He then goes on to say that student loan debt “sounds like the rust of shackles locking their way onto my degree.”
