Roberta’s children were her main motivation to complete her degree as she got older.
“They started asking questions about my education. It’s hard to express how important it is when I have nothing to stand by. I needed to go do something so that when I spoke to them about the importance of [earning a diploma] there would be no challenging questions on why I did not complete school.”
Roberta loved the entire GEDWorks™ program and her student advisor who constantly motivated her throughout the process.
“It’s a fantastic program. You can work at your own pace. It helps you become a better person and further your education and career goals. [My advisor] encouraged me to stay focused and on track. As an overnight assistant with five children it was difficult. She was amazing and understanding but always found a way to keep me on track.”
Now that Roberta earned her GED® she wants to to attend college and earn a degree relating to business so she can further her career.
