"When I first met Margo from Getting Education Done, I wanted to get my GED but I hadn't been to school in many years. Margo started mentoring me and helping me in math and other subjects. When I felt ready, I took the test and passed on the first try. I was so happy and it gave me confidence that I can go on and succeed in other things".
