City and State: California
What motivated you to get your GED degree? I dropped out of high school at a young age, and now I’m trying to get into college. Getting a GED will help me to have a future.
How have your friends and family helped you? They thought it was a great idea that I wanted to do something with my life, and not wait until it was too late.
What problems have you faced? I faced feeling like the stupid one all the time. I didn’t understand school when I went, so I just turned to the streets and got myself into trouble all the time. I went down the wrong road.
What do you hope to gain from getting your GED degree? Getting my GED will show everyone that I’m not a screw up, and that I made it on my own two feet. I want to go to college so that one day, when I have kids, they will look up to me. So I can take better care of them. I want to work at Sea World, or became a teacher, but any career that pays good money I’m down for.
Do you have more to your story? I’ve just got to say that if I can make it, anyone can.
