Jamie is a 17 year old girl who has a strong desire to become independent. For her that means enrolling in CPCC’s course to prep for the GED exam (June 2017), keeping a job and maintaining good behavior so that she can live in an independent living group home (Legacy Hall). Due to deep family dysfunction and personal behavioral issues, Jamie has not consistently attended school in three years. Her recent test results show that she bright enough to certainly complete her GED so that she can gain meaningful employment to support herself. She badly wants to get her high school diploma and become a tattoo artist so that she can support herself and live independently.
