My need and situation
I am a 18-year-old high school student and will be graduating in January of 2017. I want to go to college right after graduation and join the workforce.
My goals are to graduate from college and help support my family and secure a career which would allow me to be both economically stable and socially adaptable.
I need a laptop for college and I would also use it for employment search.
Meeting this need will help me because when I enroll into college I could use it for notes, research and projects. Meeting this need would assist me in reaching my goals to get a college degree and find employment.
Thank you for helping Oke fund this need.
