City and State: Middletown, N.Y.
What motivated you to get your GED? I have been trying so hard to get my GED. It would open so many doors of opportunity if I had one. I am getting older, and before I leave my family someday, I want them to see that I never gave up.
How have your friends and family helped you? No one has really been a backbone of encouragement. I guess they’re too busy trying to stay above water, I got lost.
What problems have you faced? I am a retired correctional officer. I know you’re probably saying, how did I land that job? Well, God is good. I was a dental assistant for 8 years before going to the federal prison, and my past work ethics speak for themselves.
What do you hope to gain from getting your GED? I will be the happiest grandma on this earth.
I could write a book on my family history. Some day that would be my goal.
