“It’s a really amazing program,” said Vanessa*. “After seeing my husband complete his GED, it gave me the courage to go get mine.”
Simon and Vanessa
Simon and Vanessa both grew up in the inner city. “Life was just life, so we got used to it,” she said. What that life looked like was this: Simon did not complete high school. He became a father as a teenager, prior to his marriage to Vanessa. Upon meeting her and starting their own family together, the couple wanted to further their lives.
