I have lived in Dartmouth all my young life. My Family at the time moved to Cole Harbour from North End Dartmouth. It was a big change for me. I didn't like the people that lived out there. I was very happy in the North End. So when I went to school everyone was on a higher level than I was. The education was a lot more advanced than where I was. Also, I had a reading disability which made it harder for me to learn. I dropped out because I felt like school was too hard.
I ended up getting pregnant with my angel, as I call her. She saved me. I was a mommy. When I would look at her, she made me want to better myself. She is so smart so I need to keep up with her. Then I got pregnant with my son. So I heard of Dartmouth Learning Network and I thought it was time for me to get my life back. The hours suited my mommy life.
My goals are to get my GED and/or my grade 12. From there I hope I really get to know my talents to start my career.
