Adult school grad finishes something she started
By: ToLewis The Press Tribune
Lisbeth Lizama will receive her high school diploma when she graduates from Roseville Adult School on Saturday. The 25-year-old mother of two says she feels quite accomplished and proud to have finished something she started. Why did you return to school? I’m trying to get into beauty school and started finding out that you either have to have a high school diploma or a GED. I also have two little girls, and I figured I can’t be pushing education on my children when I don’t even have my high school diploma. How does Roseville Adult School compare to your previous schools? They are organized. The previous adult school that I went to, they were pretty unorganized and often didn’t even know where my work was. Everything is well organized here. What challenges did you face in graduating? Juggling family life, fitting in homework, spending time with my husband, cleaning the house and all that kind of stuff, it’s a lot to have to juggle. But when it’s all said and done it feels pretty good now to be saying I’m actually getting my high school diploma. What is your proudest achievement? Finishing something that I started, because I’m not very good with that. It feels pretty good to have started this and finished. What are your post-graduation plans? I am checking out the Paul Mitchell school and getting into beauty school. I am a stay-at-home mom, so hopefully they have night classes and I can get in there.
