Alyssa from Detroit, MI — 24
I have a four-year-old daughter, but I’ve been going back in forth in programs to strive to achieve my dreams. I’m never giving up. My family has always motivated me. When I dropped out of high school, my grandparents did their best with me, but it was just all too much for me. Now I wish I could turn back the hands of time.
I am weakest in math and science, but when this is all over, I’m going to college to get my degree in business management. I want my daughter to say that her mother taught her to be somebody, and to never feel that she is nobody. I want an eleven bedroom house that will be built from the ground up just for me. I want fancy BMWs and Cadillacs. For now though, I will just thank God that I have finished what could have been finished a long time ago.
You have big dreams! Eleven bedrooms and expensive cars is a great goal to strive for! Having those kind of goals is what drives us and keeps us moving forward. Work on a step by step plan to achieve those dreams. What steps will you take to pass the GED test? To get your degree? Then what will you do out of college? Keep moving forward, and you can have anything you want! Good luck!
