Never Give Up!
Lindsey, GED Student
I decided to get my GED 16 years after leaving High School. I had gone straight from school into work, which I hated and didn’t enjoy, but I thought that was all I could do since I didn’t have a diploma. One day I decided to see if I could do something about it. I started researching online and found out that I could study at GED Academy and get my GED. I talked about it with my husband, who gave me so much encouragement, so I decided to go ahead. I bought my online materials through passGED and started. I started studying in April and took my exam in November. It took a lot of dedication, hard work, and strength to be able to do this. I really had to focus and put all of my efforts and energies into this. Some days, I was so tired of studying that I got despondent, however I kept going and kept studying until I felt ready to do the exam. I sat my exam and I found out on the weekend that I passed, and not only did I pass, I got the highest score possible in the Language Arts-Reading exam. I was thrilled and couldn’t stop smiling. The hard work really does pay off, and if you really want something bad enough, then it can be yours!!
I’ve decided to follow my dreams and get into the sports medicine industry. I will begin my course next year after a well earned break over the holiday season. I had a lot of encouragement from family and friends, and that helps. It’s never too late to follow your dreams. Never give up!!
