Saloma

Saloma from Bronx, NY

My daughter's education is so important. She needs a basic computer.

In order to be ready for the upcoming school year, my daughter needs a basic laptop to complete assignments.

My need and situation

Hi, my name is Saloma and I am sharing a need for my daughter, Faith. She is a 13-year-old Junior High School student in the Bronx and is getting ready to go to High School.

My daughter is really interested in pursuing a career in Forensic Science, and Law, and has applied to several high schools that specialize in these fields.

In order to better prepare for the upcoming school years and to help her succeed in her desired fields, she will need a laptop, so that she can work from home. At this time, we do not have access to our own computer, and I would prefer that my daughter be able to study and do research from home, instead of spending long hours in the library late at night since we presently live in a high crime neighborhood.

If she were to be able to get a laptop, she would be able to do work at home in a safe environment, as well as continue to help me in the house due to my disabilities. Having this laptop would help her be more prepared for the rigors of college and help her develop the skills needed to succeed in school.

I have been working with Saloma and her daughter, Faith for about a year now at our supportive housing program in NYC. As the assigned Social Worker for the family; I have found Saloma to be one of the most driven people that I have had the pleasure to work with, and a very dutiful mother to her young daughter. Saloma has lived a hard life, growing up in poverty in New York City, however, Saloma has worked diligently and dutifully to provide for her family with the tools needed to succeed. Saloma not only strives to help her family but her community as well. Saloma's daughter Faith is just as driven as her mother in school, and can use this assistance to continue to succeed in her education and further on in life.
