Well, I am from another country, and grew up in the middle of nowhere. My parents had 9 children (including me) and we were very, very poor. My Dad was really ill for many years and my oldest brother had to work to support all of us. The hospital was 3 hours away from home, so my mom was gone all the time to be with my dad. None of my brothers and sisters ever finished school. My oldest sister left our country at the age of 18 to come here, to the U.S., so that she could help my parents financially. And so did the rest of us, one by one. Continue reading

I want my GED to go to college or do something in child-care, and I did go to high school and receive a diploma but I have a learning disability so they didn’t give me a regular diploma.

I went to school my whole life, but my senior year I didn’t graduate with my class. I was working while I was in school, and I needed to make up a lot of credits by the time I was supposed to graduate.Â I want to go to college in January because I want to be a Down Syndrome therapist. My baby brother was born with it so I am trying to get my GED this year, hopefully. I’ve been going to school my whole life so I could get my high school diploma, but it would take a while so I’ll just take my GED.

Â My name is A. Williams. I am 43 years old. My story is a little different. I’m not here to tell you a success story about how I received my GED, in fact, I haven’t received it yet, but I intend to purchase the course just as soon as I finish this story. First, I want to share with you why I’ve not only decided to obtain my GED but why I chose to do it through this website.
I have been trying for years to get my GED. I don’t have good self-esteem. I’m afraid of failure, have been all my life. I’m working on my self-esteem and hope it gets better.
