I'm ready to get my GED! I need help with the exam cost to better support my family

I have finished my GED class and am ready to take the exam! I need help with the exam cost so I can take the next steps to obtain employment.


Angela's validator, Kimberly, sends her gratitude: Jan 8, 2014

I'm so excited for my client. I know that this is the beginning of a great year for her.


I need help with the fee to take my GED exam. Meeting this need will help me be able to get a better job and be able to take care of myself. My goal is to take the GED exam and take the next steps to obtain employment. I want to be able to better provide for myself and my family.

My current situation is that I don't have a job or money to pay for the exam even though I have finished the class.

I'm from Chicago and I live in the Pullman area.

I'm most proud of my daughter attending college. I'm happiest when I'm accomplishing my goals and something interesting about me is that I decided to go back to school at 39.
