If I Could Do It, You Can Too

My name is Jessy, I am 18 years old, and I have had so many struggles, and pain in my past. When I was 14, I finally just started high school, and then I got pregnant. I gave birth at 15 years old, and started actually feeling like a 50 year old. I was broken in and out. As a child having a child, I didn’t know what to do at the while.

Finally when I turned 17, I joined the program of Edison Job Corps. I started preparing for my GED. I always have told to myself, that I can’t do it. I took the GED 4 times to pass it. Even though I didn’t take my test online, I always studied online, and it did help me.

I just want to tell everyone who is reading this, no matter who you are, what you are, how old you are… IT DOES NOT MATTER! YOU COULD DO IT. If I could have done it, you can too. I really hope this story of mine helps someone. Thank You, and have a blessed day.
