An Interview with Rachelle
Q: How have you grown throughout your time in CEO?
“Well, it was rough start for me in CEO. I really hated having to get up and come to class. I wasn’t showing up at all. I wanted my GED, but it was so hard for me to get into the routine of coming to class and to do the homework they wanted me to do. I felt like I was 15 and in high school again, and it sucked! I felt like they were trying to control me and I hated it. I did realize that was all untrue. They are here to help lead us into success.
“I have learned that education is very important area in my life. I have my daughter Martina and she is six years old. I realized I need to get GED in order to help her with her homework in the future. She needs this as much I do.
“I have learned and grown so much since I have started in CEO. I have learned that I’m neither stupid nor dumb, and everyone learns differently. I’m so close to getting my GED, I can’t believe how far I have come. The teachers have got me into a routine, doing homework, being on time, and just showing up! I look at CEO different. I’m very thankful for the teachers that have been here for us women! Thank you!!”
