Persistence is Key

What motivated you to get your GED degree? What motivated me to get my GED are my two beautiful kids. I want them to have the best in life, and I want them to know that continuing their education is the best thing they can do for their future.

How have your friends and family helped you? My family inspired me by showing me how successful they have become by continuing their education and remaining very persistent in what they do.

What problems have you faced? The problem I have faced in my lifetime is that I’ve not stayed persistent. I’m unfocused. I know that in order to get where you want to go in life, you have to first prepare and set goals. That’s how you get started.

What do you hope to gain from getting your GED degree? I hope to be able to go to a real college. I hope to start working on becoming an RN, and to establish a process that will just help me become a better person and offer a better life for my family.

Do you have more to your story? No, right now that is all I can come up with. However, I would like to thank whoever took time to read my short story.
