"The GED helped me get my life back together, and my stress and sleeping problems eventually stopped. I was able to move on and go to a good college that I was happy with. Leaving high school early and earning my GED is one of the best decisions I ever made, and I never regretted that decision. I hope to finish college finally and find a good job."
