Day job: Supply chain project manager at American Airline
Moneymaking gig: Plasma donor
I donate plasma twice a week. i'm a regular. I go every Wednesday and Friday at 6:30 a.m. before work. I've
been doing that since May. And now I know all the names of the phlebotomists. I walk in and they say: 'Hey Monique!'
I make sure I have a protein-rich diet and drink a lot of fluids and, a few hours later, I'm fine. Right now I get
paid $55 a week, but in September it's going to be $60 -- like getting a raise.
For me, it's just for the money. I've been trying to pay down my debt. i had $105,000 in student loans, but now I'm down to $36,000. I'll stop donating once all the debts are paid.
