My name is Stephon Warren. I dropped out of high school because of my age. I was 17 in the 9th grade and was ashamed of it. My life revolves arounds sports, basketball, baseball and football. I’m really good in all three. I see my friends now getting accepted in colleges and stuff, and most of my friends, I’m betta than them in sports, but no one can see that because I have no diploma or GED.

My story is that I always wanted to get my high school diploma, but because I had two kids, I really did not have any help. I left in the 12th grade after my brother was killed. I went to Texas, and I figured that I should start working and take care of my kids. I would like to get my GED so that I won’t have to work for nothing. I would like to go into the air force so that my kids can have the life I did not have.
