My need and situation
I am a 32-year-old mother of one. I am currently unemployed due to health issues from my pregnancy and I am in school taking IT classes to have better job opportunities.
My goal is to complete the 8 month CCL IT program. By doing this I can gain entr-ylevel IT work. I hope to get better work in order to have a better life for myself and my 11-month-old girl.
I need a laptop but currently cannot afford to buy one myself. I'm currently borrowing one from the program but cannot take it home to work outside of class.
Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to complete the course successfully. By having a latpop I can take home I'l be able to devote more time to studying and gain better grades for my certification.

I met Monique through the IT program at CCL. After speaking with her I know that she is dedicated to improving her performance in the program by buying herself a lapop. While she has been doing her best, a laptop would truly allow her to excel so that she can work at home while also looking after her 11-month-old baby. Monique is a very hard worker and receiving this help would be a great thing for her goals.
