The people of Restore Education are not only advisors or mentors, but to me they are also like family. They made me feel like I had potential, and then that feeling became a reality. After obtaining my GED at Restore Education, they helped me to get ready for and enroll in college. Ever since then, joining the military has been my passion. I completed an Associates degree in criminal justice. It was two years of hard work in college, but finally I have my degree thanks to Restore Education. I went from a middle school dropout with no education to a college graduate and enlisted soldier. Now, I am stationed in Arkansas and am planning on finishing my Bachelor’s degree soon. Without them, none of this could have been possible. I don’t know where I would be today.
