G.E.D. Needed For Better Job

My Story:

I know a GED is not a 'back to work' request,but I look at it as a chance to have a career. I am 27 and dropped out of high school due to not much support while in school and feeling like I would never amount to anything. I have been working at dead end jobs or ones I don't enjoy. I made a goal this year to get my GED so i can better myself and be a role model for my 6 year old daughter, knowing her mommy accomplished something. I work almost fulltime and I found a website that offers a GED, and the amount includes everything I would need to get my GED. It prepares you for the test, I would get my own personal tutor and I am also allowed to retake the test as needed without any additional cost. By me doing it online, it would make it easier and less stressful then doing it eslewhere. I really want to do this for myself and I have support from my family and I feel I could find a job that I would enjoy. I look into going for nursing one day, since I am working at a home health care facility right now. I thank you so much if I can get assistance for this. I will do my best and pass with flying colors.
