Everyone’s story is different. Here’s mine: I was 17 years of age holding two jobs. I started dating this guy, and things took a turn for the worst. I moved out of my home and in with my boyfriend and so called best friends. Everything was great at first, but I started missing school and slacking in my classes. I was in a bad place. I was already a year behind as it was, because in 5th grade I was held back. I went through a horrifying time of my life. My best friend, Jessica, was killed. As soon as I realized what I was doing to my life, I packed my belongings and moved back home where I decided to further my life, get my GED, and steer my life in a better direction!
My parents are a big part in my motivation. I don’t know what I would do without them! I moved out at too young of an age, lost my jobs, and was headed toward a world of trouble. However, I got my head on straight. Now, my dream is too go into the Navy and study the medical field. But first I will study hard for the GED test!
