The challenge I faced while getting my GED was the language. I didn't speak English and had to learn and am still learning.
People who didn't believe in me is what motivated me. I wanted to prove to them that I could do it and that I could do more.
It was so important to me to get my GED to obtain a career that I can enjoy.
When I passed my GED test it was just an amazing feeling. I knew I had accomplished something I put so much work toward.
I just remember my grandma always saying how important education was, so I decided to get my GED.
I didn’t want to be the only one without a diploma in my family.
One of the things I loved is that I was making friends while I was in school because we were all working as a group encouraging each other.
The biggest motivation had to be my kids. I wanted something better for them. Having dead-end jobs was just not enough.
My motivation was my friends in college. I knew that one day I wanted to be like them earning a degree.
It served as a foundation to show the world my strength and ambition to become who I want to be.
GED has meant so much so it was only fitting I continue to work in education.
