Afraid I'd Fail

What motivated you to get your GED degree? I wasn’t able to continue school when I got pregnant with my son. I want to finish my education to help support my family, to be all that I can be for my son, and to live up to my potential.

How have your friends and family helped you? I had doubts that my I could pass the GED test. I thought I was stupid and would fail horribly. But my family encouraged me and believed in me until I was ready to take the first step towards getting my GED.

What problems have you faced? Being a single mom, it is sometimes difficult to study and take care of my son at the same time.

What do you hope to gain from getting your GED degree? I want to complete this stage of my life, focus on my family, and look into getting a part time job that involves children.
