LET’S GET STARTED

"High school was a breeze for me until my mother got cancer. Everything began to crumble around me, and with the school being a very unsupportive environment. I had been an honor roll student every quarter my freshmen and sophmore year until I couldn’t take all the negativity toward me. The people I’ve met through getting my GED certificate have also been very supportive. I plan to go to college after getting my GED diploma so that I can build a better future for myself."
