“My first goal is to get my diploma so I can set a good example for my children. I am doing that by working with Families Learning Together. They are great! I not only get to work on my diploma, I also get pointers on parenting, cooking and so much more. It is really helping me realize some things I am falling behind with in life. I finally feel like I have a future…I just need to figure out where the future is going to take me after I graduate. I do know that I don’t want to go back to what I have done for the past eight years.”
