I came to LAI because I failed my high school graduation exam. My school gave me a special education diploma but I did not realize that I could not get in college or a good job without a regular high school diploma. I am at LAI to get my GED. My reading level is up, I am working hard on math and use Aztec (digital learning) four hours every day. LAI also has so many opportunities to help us get ready for the workforce. I have attended workshops that help me fill out job applications, cover letters and update my resume. I am the perfect example of a person who doesn’t let stumbling blocks hold me back from accomplishing my goals. LAI gives adults like me a second chance.

My name is Amber and I came to Literacy Action to conquer my fear of failing academically. After I finish my classes at Literacy Action, I plan to continue my journey with Per Scholas, a school that helps you get an IT certification. Literacy Action has helped people better their education and get better jobs. I believe when I finish I can help encourage others to better their future.

This year, Kenya and Amber were two of Literacy Action’s internal finalists to be nominated for participation in the Technical College System of Georgia’s Exceptional Adult Georgian in Literacy Education (EAGLE) program, which recognizes and honors students who have demonstrated exceptional achievement in statewide adult education classes.
