My Daughter Motivates Me

My story is I got married and had a baby at 16. I dropped out at 15.

Once my daughter was born, she motivated me so much. I wanted her to have everything I didn't. I didn't want her to grow up and not have what she needs or wants because of my mistakes, so I decided one day that I was going to change.

I enrolled in the HiSET program with the intention to get my diploma and go to college so she could have a future. I was determined but nervous that I would forget everything. With a little studying and motivation from her, I did it! I passed! Now I am enrolling for college and trying to fix my mistakes for her. So dropping out and having a baby so young isn't an excuse to not finish school.
