One Woman’s Mission To Help Students and Families Pay For College

At just 26-years-old, Jessica Brown is the CEO of her own company, collegegurl.com. After being laid off from her job at Howard University, Jessica wasn’t sure what her step should be. Knowing that she had extensive knowledge in navigating the various ways in which to pay for college, Ms. Brown decided to turn that knowledge into a business. Prior to starting the website, Jessica Brown was a Coordinator of Special Awards and Financial Services Counselor at Howard University and then Strayer University. According to Jessica, she “served 40,000 students and assisted in granting millions of dollars worth of scholarships.” With the launch of collegegurl.com, Jessica Brown aims to give prospective college students and their families as much information as possible on the numerous ways to pay for a college education.

The first thing that Ms. Brown advises students and their families to do is to fill-out the FAFSA (free application for federal student aid) application. She wants applicants to realize, “The financial aid awarding process is first come, first serve.” So it’s best to apply well in advance of the start of the school year. Ms. Brown tells students not to get caught up with going to their dream school if it’s not financially feasible. She reminds them, “The same professors at your dream school are teaching at lower priced schools. You can get a quality education anywhere. Education is what you make it.”  Another piece of sound advice that Ms. Brown gives to students and their families is to review their annual income and expenses when budgeting for college expenditures. This needs to be done because it “…gives you a blueprint of where you—or your parents—stand financially.”

Hp Printer Offline Error

I needed to print my thesis after finishing my practical work in the college.

And the printer won’t just ge to work and keeps on displaying HP printer offline error again and again no matter how many times i give the command print or even try
to restart the computer. If you have been a masters or doctorate student you will know how deadlines work and how your guide will rebuke you over not finishing your work and thesis submission on time.
So I have been working on my doctorate project and my whole research of five years combined in one thesis book that
will show the efforts, sweat and sleepless nights I’ve put
in my project. After finishing my online submission of
thesis I need to make a hard copy, actually five hard copies for all
the professors i will be facing and defending my PHD work in front of
them. And doing this was only made possible by the help of hardworking people at gadgetsick.com who guided me through the whole process
of getting my laptop to work.

Whole day I was wondering how am I going to get this all done
if only this printer will get to work, if only it can stop displaying this HP printer
offline error.I’ve always been the studios too
much into books kind of a person,not knowing anything about printers
or fixing them. That is when I got the much needed help from the staff from gadgetsick.com who are genuinely trying
to help people stuck in the same situation as I was.They deserve a heartfelt thank
you for making it possible for me to finish my work on time.
In a stressful situation of defending my whole work of 5 years, I got the help I needed.
