A Brighter Future
Destiny from Oregon, GED Student
What motivated you to get your GED? I’ve never been good at school. I would try my best at everything, but it seemed like I kept failing. I was a freshman twice. I started getting behind and confused. I decided that I need to do something for myself. I need a good life for myself, and later on, for my own family.
How have your friends and family helped you? Well, my parents are split up. I dont have a relationship with my dad, and my mom doesnt really help. My godparents and my boyfriend have helped me. They tell me that they believe in me everyday-that they know I will have a bright future. I thank them for being there for me and supporting me.
What problems have you faced? I have problems studying and getting myself motivated to do something with my life.
What do you hope to gain from getting your GED? What I hope to gain from getting my GED is a bright future. I’ve always wanted to be a psychologist. I love helping people and knowing that I’ve helped them. I want to have a great future with my boyfriend. I want to be able to help bring food to the table. I want to have a wonderful family and know that someday, when I have kids, that they will have a great life. I want to be able to help them with whatever they need.
