"I want to say something to all the teens reading this. I understand how hard high school can get. All the drama, people stepping all over you. You try so hard to try your best, but sometimes you don’t have the love and care there. Get your GED certificate. Dont listen to what people have to say. Don’t ever let anybody tell you that you can’t. Put your mind to it."
