My Work Doesn't Pay the Bills
Heather from Tennessee, GED Student
What motivated you to get your GED? Throughout the years I have always kept a job. Although, not always the best kind of job, it was honest and I worked hard. Last year my life changed for the worst and I realized you can’t always depend on things to be perfect. Hard times have come and the work I was doing doesn’t pay the bills like it used to. My children motivate me to better my life and theirs.
How have your friends and family helped you? My children are my world. They motivate me to become better at everything I do, not only for myself but for them.
What problems have you faced? You know, I really thought I would have a hard time on math, but with the help of the GED Academy I’m getting by. The worst by far for me is Language. I just can’t seem to get the mechanics down. It drives me INSANE!!
What do you hope to achieve with your GED? I hope to gain a sense of peace, knowing I finally was able to finish something. I also hope to better myself and my family. Getting my GED will give me more confidence, so I can go to college and begin a new life.
