My motivation was my friends in college. I knew that one day I wanted to be like them earning a degree.
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.
I started thinking positively, asking for help and believing I could actually do it.
I took a picture in my cap and gown to visualize myself succeeding and then I did.
Without my teachers there’s no way I could have did it. They were and still are my rock.
I was so scared to get my GED because I thought I would fail just like I did with everything in life. The urge to change my life was so strong.
I wanted to quit so many times because I felt that I wasn’t smart enough to pass.
I didn’t want to be the only one without a diploma in my family.
I had made poor decisions as a high schooler and wanted to fix the mistakes I made.
It was so important for me to get my GED to obtain a career that I can enjoy.
