I did not finish high school because I stopped being focused and I didn’t have a goal to graduate. I mean, I wanted to graduate, but I never made graduating one of my goals, so it was like I was going to school just to be going. Plus I started hanging around the wrong people or people who didn’t really have any real goals in life. I got side tracked into the streets. More and more I was hanging out in the streets, less and less I was going to school.
East Oakland Youth Development Center has helped me out a lot. This (GED) program showed me how to stay more focused and it has helped me to receive my GED certificate. Also, they have helped me find a job and learn how to present myself in the right way when looking for a job.
I thank EOYDC because without them, I probably wouldn’t have my GED and I probably wouldn’t have a job right now.
