Boston, MA (PRWEB) September 18, 2013
Explore Talent reports on new article, "Mark Wahlberg is a High School Graduate!" Individuals can read the entire piece online, but clips are included in this release.
Mark Wahlberg recently announced that he attended, and graduated, high school online. The father of four spoke out about his struggles, achievements, and encouragement for others to follow the right path.
"I never made it past the ninth grade," the 42-year-old shared, according to Us Weekly. "My circumstances were not unlike millions of other teens today, who live in tough working class neighborhoods surrounded by drugs, violence and crime, and who struggle to stay on the right path without positive influences."
"Most high school dropouts don't end up with successful careers in Hollywood," he continued. "I was lucky. Compared with high school graduates, dropouts are more likely to be unemployed, in poor health, living in poverty or on public assistance."
"For almost a year, I've been taking classes and studying any chance I could get -- on the set, traveling for work and at home," Wahlberg said. "It has been both humbling and challenging, but I'm happy to report that I am officially a high school graduate, having received my diploma this summer."
