How I Got Here: Greg

  • Texas GEAR UP

When San Antonio native Greg lost his scholarship while he was in college, he was absolutely determined that he would still graduate. So he turned to student loans to cover his costs…with more than a little trepidation. But even though the idea of going into debt scared him, he saw it as an investment in himself. And Greg was very strategic about handling his loan funds so he could get that coveted degree into his hands. Watch his “How I Got Here” video to hear his compelling tale in his own words. It’s a fantastic story to share with TXGU’ers—and did we mention that he also happens to be a rapper?
