LET’S GET STARTED

“I’m 24 years old and a single mother of a 4 year old son. I dropped out of school in th 9th grade, at the age of 16. I got pregnant when I was 19 and realized that I needed an education to find employment. I started GED test prep in October and successfully passed 4 of the 5 tests. I am pushing myself and working hard on trying to pass [Math]. I don’t want a life of poverty for my son.”
