Not having a diploma has always been a pain in my side, always feeling ashamed when the subject came up. When my daughter started school, I started volunteering in her class. I was later asked if I would be interested in working for the school and if so, they would like to hire me. I then realized that I would only qualify for the position if I had my GED.
My family has been wonderful! My husband has always believed that I could accomplish anything and my mom is paying for the Academy in view of her support. I want my daughter to be proud of me and to know that school is very important.
I have faced many trials in my life, and from a little girl starting school, the foundation that was laid out for me was detrimental to the success that I would have in school. I am still trying to overcome these issues but I have resolved in my heart that I am going to do this for me. I deserve it.
I know that this certificate does not define who I am as a person, but I feel it will help build my confidence in myself and to get rid of that shame from walking out as a senior in high school. I won’t have to look back anymore but only move forward. I plan to get that job and be proud of myself!
It really sounds like you’ve already succeeded! As you said, you do not let a piece of paper define you, but do what’s necessary to get what you want out of life. We have no doubt in our minds that you will pass the GED with flying colors! Good luck, we know you can do it!
