LET’S GET STARTED

"I’m not really sure what I want to do yet, but I definitely plan to go to college. I’m 16 and live in Kentucky. I’ve been going through a lot the past couple of years. I’m in and out of the hospital like every two or three weeks because I have cystic fibrosis. I have been so stressed out because I’m so behind. I think getting my GED would be the best option for me."
