"You know, I really thought I would have a hard time on math, but with the help of the GED Academy I’m getting by. I hope to gain a sense of peace, knowing I finally was able to finish something. I also hope to better myself and my family. Getting my GED will give me more confidence, so I can go to college and begin a new life."
