GED Academy Helping Students Pass
I’m very proud of myself to come this far. When I came to the United States I only had 7th grade of education, and English is not my first language. I didn’t graduate high school, because my parents were very poor, they couldn’t afford to send me to school. I was very embarrassed to tell my friends, that I don’t have a high school diploma.
It's Never Too Late to Move Forward
My mother took ill and brought me to Washington DC and then left me to take care of myself, and I had a fear of going to school because I was fearful of my underage, that the school system would lock me up. Mind you at the time I was only 16, and didn’t want to go to jail.
