Music is my Passion
Dana from Tennessee, GED Student
What motivated you to get your GED? My mom and my boyfriend motivated me to get my GED. They showed me what it could be like if I didn’t do something with my life.
How have your friends and family helped you? They have helped me by getting me on the right track and keeping my focused. They have introduced me to people who’ve never done anything with their lives. It showed me that I can do more with mine; I can be anything I want to be. I can do anything I want to do, as long as I set my mind to it.
What problems have you faced? Well, my problems started when I was 16. I got kicked out of school, and I started getting into the party scene. I got pregnant and moved in with my boyfriend who had dropped out of school and had no job. We lived with his parents, then I started hating my life. I moved to a place where I didn’t know anybody, and I realized I couldn’t wait for my life to change. I had to do it myself.
What do you hope to gain from getting your GED? I hope to gain an education, so I can go to college and make something of myself. I have two things I would love to do. First, I would love to go to a Christian college and become a counselor for young teens. Then, I could help lead them to God. Christianity has always been a huge part of my life. I once led an atheist to Christianity, and it was the most amazing feeling in the world. The second thing I would love to do is become a singer/song writer. I love to sing. Music has always been my passion for as long as long as I can remember. I take my problems and relationships, and I write music from them. I’m hoping that I can reach these goals by getting my GED.
