Just One Barrier, Math!
Shaheen from Texas, GED Student
What motivated you to get your GED? The gears in my life have been rusting these past few years, they haven’t moved in a long time & I feel that it is necessary to acquire a GED in order for me to get those gears cleaned, oiled up and ready to go. It is my only setback towards success, that final stepping stone that I need to finally get moving. The GED Academy really helps me to relearn the math. I learn well from Leonard and the other characters.
How have your friends and family motivated, helped, or inspired you? My family, specifically, have given me that extra push I needed towards GED test taking. I was intimidated at first, but I’ve been able to conquer many obstacles with their inspirational pep talks, I owe them my very being for being so supportive of me, pushing me towards a brighter educational future.
What problems have you faced? So far none but one, I feel confident on all aspects of the GED Test except for one solitary barrier, Math. I haven’t been in school since the 8th grade & I am currently 20 years old, after I had gone through most of the practice tests successfully, I have been flustered over the fact that I do not know/recall anything about math. All I need is that extra push from an outside force, I feel ever so dense & frankly, I just want to get it over with.
What do you hope to achieve with your GED? I hope to gain an extra set of stairs, leading towards a door, behind that door lies my future, my passions & ambitions, I have put everything that I have into the GED faith & trust. Wholly given to the fact that passing the GED will help me reach that door, I truly believe that, I must succeed, I must destroy the barrier ahead of me to reach my goals & to accomplish them with a smile.
