I left high school in form 2 because of family issues. I have a great job, 3 kids, one grandkid, and my dream is to get my GED. BUT I don’t think I can do maths. Believe it or not, no one in the company where I work knows that I didn’t finish school. I just move up the ladder. Sometimes I feel guilty that I don’t have the papers. I wonder if I’m too old now and wouldn’t be able to study. Sometimes I don’t even remember my math tables.
My dream is I to go to college. I want to know more educational wise and I want to be able to help my kids with some of their homework.
I was in and out of high school till the age of 19 when I just gave up and left with 16 credits to my name. The pressure I put on myself was too much and I ended up very depressed.
I have always had a hard time with school. For me it was always a pressure thing. I needed to be perfect and I always felt less than that. I work in child care now but really want to make a change; that is why I am studying for my GED.
I would like to get my GED because I would like to go back to school and become a child and youth worker. I would like to help children who just need someone to go to for help.
My dream is to find the time and the money to be able to stop work and take a couple years off to go to college.
