I Had No Choice
What motivated you to get your GED degree? I realize that it’s important to have an education. My family moved a lot because off my father’s jobs. Moving a lot affected my years in school and caused me to fall behind. So I was forced to get my GED by court order. Now I’m hoping that this might work, so I can be a very successful person. I want to pass the GED test.
How have your friends and family helped you? My mother supports me by telling me not to give up and to try my best.
What problems have you faced? I am hoping to get a job any time now. I will face everyone that has made me feel bad about myself just to put me down. I believe everyone can do it no matter what.
What do you hope to gain from getting your GED degree? Right now, I’m not sure about what I would like to become, but my goals are to go to college and get a degree.
