Deepa passes her GED!

Deepa’s Story

Deepa had been in the US for two years when she applied for Project Literacy’s Carmen Pichardo Scholarship. Deepa wanted to take classes to improve her reading and writing.

Her goal was to pass the GED (General Educational Development test, a high school equivalency exam).

With the help of the scholarship, Deepa enrolled in classes at the Bergen Community College Ciarco Learning Center. Three classes later, she took the GED.

“Finally I passed!” said Deepa when she got her scores. “The most important thing is I studied hard, hard, hard. Sometimes I didn't have enough sleep because I was studying.”
