Studying in a Foreign Country
Russ from the Philippines, GED Student
My fiancé motivated me to get a GED even though I’m nervous what it’s like to study in a foreign country. They’re all very supportive because I’m doing it for myself and also for my kids and my family. I want to feel good about myself so that I am not self conscious to face people.
The problem I am facing is that I doubt if I can make it or not, or if I’m welcome since I’m a Filipino. But my fiancé encouraged me to give it try because it’s like a now or never opportunity and we don’t get any younger. I am hoping that after I get a GED I will be able to go to community college, especially in nursing field, and also hoping to learned more fluently in English. I have dreams and hopes and I believe getting my GED is a big step for me to succeed.
