When Alandria was growing up she was homeschooled but always wanted to see what it felt like to be in a school setting.
“I was looked down upon, talked about, and I was treated unfairly because I was not in a school like other children I knew."
Alandria believed that if she took the GED she would be accepted more but nothing really changed.
"I wanted to quit so many times because I felt that I wasn't smart enough to pass. But with a lot of help and encouragement from my family, I was able to forget about all the rude things people said and I did it for myself."
Alandria liked the program and felt she had all of the information and tools she needed to pass. After she took a test, based on her score, she would receive more materials to help her study.
Now that Alandria has her credential she plans to attend community college to earn her associate degree in general business and then transfer to a four-year college to get a bachelor's degree in International Business.
