STUDENT IS PROUD OF HER GED® ACCOMPLISHMENT

Due to unfortunate circumstances, Julie Boyd of Blackstone, was unable to complete high school. 

“I've talked about getting my GED ever since. I am 21 years old and it took me two weeks to obtain it. I couldn't be more proud of myself,” she said.

She noted that the person that inspired her to move forward with her education is her recently deceased brother. 

“He was my 18 year old brother, his name was Joshua Baughan. He died in a car accident December 21, 2016. He was my best friend, my rock. He pushed me every day to do better for myself. When he passed away, it showed me life was too short to take the small things for granted,” she said. 

She also added that he lived his life to the fullest and accomplished everything he started.   

“He inspired me on so many levels. I did this, not just for me, but for him as well. I will work hard and succeed in everything I do, because he is always with me. This achievement means so much to me. But it's only a start,” she said.

Boyd also has a fiancé’ who has also played a huge roll in her life.

“He supports me in everything I do, and he has stood by my side faithfully for three years. I am very thankful to have him in my life. I love all of my family and friends. I wouldn't be where I am today without them,” she said.

 She plans to continue her education in the nursing field or forensic science.   

Her advice to others, you can do anything you put your mind to if you believe in yourself.

“Never give up. Knowledge is power. With power you can do great things in life. I am grateful for the support of my family. They never gave up on me,” she said.
