Washington, Apr 25 (ANI): President Obama has revealed that he finished paying off his student loan only about eight years back.

Wooing the young voters crucial to his re-election, President Obama on Tuesday unveiled a passionate campaign -style appeal to students as he pressed lawmakers to avert the cost of college from rising.

Speaking to a crowd of roughly 8,000 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the president asserted that he understands the financial burdens students face.

"Michelle and I, we've been in your shoes," ABC News quoted Obama as saying.

"We didn't come from wealthy families. When we graduated from college and law school, we had a mountain of debt. When we married, we got poorer together."

"Check this out, all right? I'm the president of the United States. We only finished paying off our student loans about eight years ago. That wasn't that long ago," he added. (ANI)
