I Am Who I Choose To Be
Pamela from Maryland, GED Student
What motivated you to get your GED? Well first of all, I was in high school and I dropped out at the end of tenth grade because of family reasons. I was seventeen and I realized that staying home, thinking about parties and clubs was not going to help me in my future. I decided that I wanted to get my GED one way or the other. I started GED classes but for some reason, I quit going. I don’t know why. I started thinking that I really need to make a good thing out of my life. So, this time I am determined to make it no matter what. I want to pass my GED test, get a better job, and help my mom and daughter. I want them to be proud of me, and I want to be proud of myself too. I am going to prove to the world that I can make it, through God and GED Academy.
How have your friends and family helped you? As for my friends, they have been there since I droped out of school. They have encourage me to get my life back together and go get my GED. They advised me like a sister. They care about me and they are always there for me. As for my family, they don’t really care about me like that. They look down on me. They think that I am not going to make it in life. They think that I dont care about my future, but they dont know me like I know myself. They say my life is not going to go anywhere. They say I am going to end up on the street, but I am going to prove to them that I can make it by studying hard and getting my GED.
What problems have you faced? I have faced millions of problems, but with God’s help, I am solving them. I know that the only way I can solve them is by geting my GED, going to college, and then getting a good job.
What do you hope to gain from getting your GED? I hope to gain more knowlege. I want to be an RN. I want to help my family and friends. I want to be the person that I choose to be.
