"I have faced a lot of problems. But the main problem was with the money to take the GED test. I did have a job, and I have my income. I solved that problem by getting a loan. By getting my GED diploma I hope to get a good job making good money. I want to go to college and be a nurse. I want to own my own business and help other people to get on the right path to a good and successful lifestyle."
