The first time I thought I needed to study to get the GED Certificate was when somebody offered me a job in a big factory. The job had full benefits and paid good money, but I couldn't get it because the job required a high school diploma or a GED Certificate. 

The last grade I had attended was 9th grade in Mexico in 1966. I said to myself, "I have to try to get the GED Certificate." 

I started to study at the Adult Education Center in November of 2007, and in May of 2008, I obtained my GED Certificate. 

I have to thank Juanita Bowers, and the ESOL instructor, Nancy Blevins, for their help. 

I am proud to have my GED. I thought it would be harder, but it wasn't. 

If you think you cannot do it, you are wrong. You can! 

Rodrigo attained his GED in May, 2008 and is working on improving his computer skills.
