Before coming to the Saint John Learning Exchange I was on a dead-end road. I did not believe in myself and was not motivated. Since I have been here I have the mind set that I can conquer my G.E.D. This new journey has also presented me with opportunities to express the importance of a high school diploma. I had multiple chances to talk to friends about this great experience, and now have a neighbor that is interested in taking the same step.
From the first day I arrived, a window has been open to endless possibilities that I can now see that I could not see before. A mechanics course is one of the possibilities after I successfully pass my General Education Diploma. There will be further avenues once I pass my automotive course. I have gone from one extreme to another. One time I was on a track with no value. Knowing I can successfully achieve my grade 12 I can now hold my head high, knowing this is a step in the right direction.
Thanks to the Saint John Learning Exchange I can now broaden my horizon at which one time was in the shadows of everyday life.
